An Inclusive Kingdom

  • by

This week Pastor Dennis walks through Acts 8:26-40 (NIV), the story of Philip being sent by an angel of God to an Ethiopian eunuch. The eunuch represents a new ethnic and racial group that God wants to reach with the Gospel. And, culturally, the eunuch is considered to be gender non-conforming, neither male nor female. In fact, God’s people have been taught that eunuchs, whether they became eunuchs by choice or force, are outsiders to the people of God, systematically excluded on the basis of their bodies. But God, through Philip, pursues the eunuch who hears the Gospel, believes in Jesus, is baptized, and becomes a full member of God’s family. The Gospel is wildly expansive and radically inclusive and God wants His kids to come home. All of them.
