PARTNERSHIP - PHILIPPIANS 1:1-12

1. Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: 2. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3. I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4. always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, 5. in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. 6. For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. 7. For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. 8. For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9. And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, 10. so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; 11. having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. 12. Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel,

ACTS 9:1-20

1. Now Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, 2. and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3. As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; 4. and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, ``Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" 5. And he said, ``Who are You, Lord?" And He said, ``I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, 6. but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do." 7. The men who traveled with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. 8. Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing; and leading him by the hand, they brought him into Damascus. 9. And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank. 10. Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and the Lord said to him in a vision, ``Ananias." And he said, ``Here I am, Lord." 11. And the Lord said to him, ``Get up and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying, 12. and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him, so that he might regain his sight." 13. But Ananias answered, ``Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he did to Your saints at Jerusalem; 14. and here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name." 15. But the Lord said to him, ``Go, for he is a chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel; 16. for I will show him how much he must suffer for My name's sake." 17. So Ananias departed and entered the house, and after laying his hands on him said, ``Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." 18. And immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he regained his sight, and he got up and was baptized; 19. and he took food and was strengthened. Now for several days he was with the disciples who were at Damascus, 20. and immediately he began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues, saying, ``He is the Son of God."

ACTS 8:26-40

26. But an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip saying, ``Get up and go south to the road that descends from Jerusalem to Gaza." (This is a desert road. ) 27. So he got up and went; and there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure; and he had come to Jerusalem to worship, 28. and he was returning and sitting in his chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29. Then the Spirit said to Philip, ``Go up and join this chariot." 30. Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, ``Do you understand what you are reading?" 31. And he said, ``Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. 32. Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this: ``HE WAS LED AS A SHEEP TO SLAUGHTER; AND AS A LAMB BEFORE ITS SHEARER IS SILENT, SO HE DOES NOT OPEN HIS MOUTH. 33. ``IN HUMILIATION HIS JUDGMENT WAS TAKEN AWAY; WHO WILL RELATE HIS GENERATION? FOR HIS LIFE IS REMOVED FROM THE EARTH." 34. The eunuch answered Philip and said, ``Please tell me, of whom does the prophet say this? Of himself or of someone else?" 35. Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him. 36. As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ``Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?" 37. [ And Philip said, ``If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, ``I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."] 38. And he ordered the chariot to stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch, and he baptized him. 39. When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, but went on his way rejoicing. 40. But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he kept preaching the gospel to all the cities until he came to Caesarea.
