My Study Notes : Chapter 27 TO LIVE IS CHRIST
Acts 20: 1-12
Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on
Luke tells us that after leaving
When spending a week in
Paul like many teachers felt that what he had learned must be taught. He preached longer than his audience was prepared to listen. Paul was compelled by his love of Christ to speak with energy that knew no bounds. It was then that God had an opportunity to raise the dead.
When the boy fell out of the window Paul ran down the stairs
And threw his arms around Eutychus saying don’t be alarmed he is alive now.
After that he climbed three flights of stairs, broke bread with them and stayed til daylight. No one fell asleep this time.
The moral of the story:
God may bring back to life what man hath put to sleep.
We never know when God might take advantage of a situation for his purpose.
