Be a Gate Builder

August 5, 2017

Churches should exist primarily to show Christ to the world, and what better representation than to be the voice, hands and heart of love, acceptance and forgiveness? Before Christ, the Ethiopian eunuch would have never been allowed in the “family.” This was not only because of his race, but also because of his status. However, Jesus not only understood his Father, he also knew the Scriptures when Isaiah paints a beautiful “gate” of promised acceptance. No wonder the eunuch was so inquisitive as to what prohibited him from being baptized.
