we read today about Philip being sent by the Holy Spirit to meet up with the Ethiopian eunuch. after baptizing him, the writer of Acts says that the Holy Spirit then "snatched him away" and he "found himself farther north at the town of Azotus".
this sound pretty amazing. unless i'm reading it wrong, it seems like Philip was transported from one place to another instantly. this isn't the first case of this happening, as characters in the OT were transported supernaturally, and modern day saints have done similar things, including bilocating. it brings to mind this story which was actually, it turns out, less supernatural than previously thought, but still pretty cool how God used the right person at the right time.
God, please use me today to help someone who needs You.
