Philip was a good evangelist because he was obedient to God’s call. This obedience to God was not sullen or grudging; it was joyful. When the Spirit tells Philip to go over to the chariot and join the Ethiopian, the text says, “Philip RAN up to it’. This suggests that for Philip, to obey God’s will and preach the Gospel was a joy and delight. Perhaps his life may be an inspiration to us.
