March 23 & 24, 2019 - In the town of Samaria, Philip was teaching with such authority that a famous and powerful sorcerer named Simon came to faith in Jesus Christ. Simon followed devotedly --- until he noticed that some were being baptized in the Holy Spirit. Simon offered them money so he too could lay hands and give such power. Simon was still contaminated by the lure of power and fame. And he was rejected. Today we see people who come to faith quickly but run to the limelight of attention while rejecting simple, humble servanthood.
