A Trustworthy Treasurer
| He was obviously
trusted by his queen to be in charge of her treasury. But more than that,
we read how he was a long way from home, having been to Jerusalem to
worship, and was reading Isaiah 53.
He was either a Jew or a proselyte, and possibly with black skin. But none of this is central. He is noted as a man who was attentive to his religious duties.
Being a believer in God and the Old Testament, when the truth of Christ was presented to him he believed and obeyed, then went on his way rejoicing. Well he might rejoice. Now he was saved and a child of God in Christ. How different from his former state of being honest, sincere, religious but lost.
He heard what all need to hear. He did what all need to do. He was blessed as all can be blessed.
