Remaining Anonymous

After they had come out of the water, the Lord’s Spirit took Philip away. The official never saw him again, but he was very happy as he went on his way.

(Acts 8:39 CEV)

I wonder if the Ethiopian eunuch ever learned Philip’s name. Philip had played a big part in helping him understand the Scriptures and had even baptized him. But after his mission was complete, Philip was taken away, and the eunuch went on his way rejoicing. The Bible is clear – their paths never crossed again. Oftentimes, God allows us to remain anonymous to the people to whom we minister. They may never learn our names (and we may never learn theirs), but what matters in the end is that they know the name of the One who matters most–Jesus Christ.

When we remain anonymous, Jesus becomes well known.
