Acts 8:13
“Simon himself believed and was baptised. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw.”
A believer.
Baptised.
A follower.
But something was wrong and it’s hard to see what it was from this verse but it is in this phrase ….
“astonished by the great signs and miracles”.
Astonished not because of Jesus, but of what he saw Philip do.
The supernatural can be the cause of us taking our eyes off Jesus because we love His hand but cannot commit to His face.
Why did Simon become a baptised believer and follower? It surely was the miracles he saw.
Simon who made many astonished with his magic is now astonished by greater works that he is not involved with.
Some follow the miracles and others follow the miracle worker.
