The Apostles are sent from Jerusalem once they hear how God is blessing the labors of Philip. Through their ministry, Simon’s hypocrisy is revealed. We see:

  • Why the giving of the Spirit was delayed until the arrival of Peter and John.
  • How the arrival of the Apostles was used to show Simon that he was not saved.

We are all encouraged to seek God for the Holy Spirit in our lives, to make us more useful in His service. We are also cautioned to make sure that our calling and election is sure.
