40 Acts – Responsive

Speaker: Ian Campbell
Acts 8.26-40
A preacher was in an elevator and had his Bible in his hand. A person joined him in the lift and, noticing the Bible in his hand, asked “Is that a Bible?” “Yes”, said the preacher, “have you read it?” “Of course,” said the new friend. “What’s your favourite part?” pressed the preacher. After some embarrassed hesitation the preacher pushed harder with “You’ve never read it have you?” “No” was the reply. “Why did you say you had read it then?” preacher persisted. “Because I guess I thought everybody should read the Bible at some time in their lifetime and I just haven’t gotten around to it!” Acts 8 is the great story of an Ethiopian Royal official and his adventure in Bible reading.
