Acts 20:7-9

7 On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. 8 There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting. 9 Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.

One response to “Acts 20:7-9

  1. I have heard some humerous messages about this story. In truth, Paul was giving of himself because he knew he was moving on and he loved these people and wanted them to grow in Christ. Also, this man was allowed to die, and to fall in this circumstance so that God could be honored in what was to come. This really gives meaning to the prayer, I must decrease so that He may increase.
