Text: Acts 20:1-38.
In this passage Paul meets with a Church for worship on the first day of the week, Sunday, the Lord’s Day. Because the Church had an opportunity to hear directly from an apostle, Paul spoke all through the night. A certain man, Eutychus, sitting in an open window, drifted into sleep, and fell out of the window, falling three floors, died when he hit the ground (vv.7-12). Paul went down to him and, by God’s grace, brought the man back to life. The details are not given. Paul would have been teaching about Jesus and how He gives life to our dead souls (Ep.2:1), and giving life to the dead man’s body was a sign that Jesus gives life to our spiritual deadness. (Please read Matt.9:4-6.)
Do miracles exist today? The purpose of miracles was to validate new revelation, and because the Scriptures are now finished, much as God still does supernatural things, every healing is from God, etc., and all things are provided according to His eternal plan and work, and in accordance to His will.
Meditate on verse 27-30. What is God telling you in these verses?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray against the savage wolves who are attacking Your church. Amen.
