|Philip baptizing the Eunuch Treasurer of Ethiopia|
God doesn't seem to have held it against Philip, because he sent him on the road where a seemingly chance meeting with the treasurer of the Queen of Ethiopia led to an impromptu baptism and the birth of the Ethiopian church. This marked the first conversion aimed outside Israel (the Greeks like Philip were all leftovers from the Hellenistic Empire).
Philip seems an ambitious Christian, but he is not condemned for this. He makes missteps, but is allowed to redeem himself. As we consider those who seek to do the work of God, (and as Americans, we are apt to be cynical about their intentions) we would do well to consider saints like Philip.
