Missionaries (7)

Many wonderful things happened while Paul was a missionary. Our Bible Reading today tells us about the time he was in the city of Troas. Paul preached to a group of people. These people met together to share the Lord’s Supper.
Verse 9 tells us what happened. “There was a young man named Eutychus sitting in the window. Paul continued talking, and Eutychus became very, very sleepy. Finally, he went to sleep and fell out of the window. He fell to the ground from the third floor. When the people went down and lifted him up, he was dead.” That was a terrible thing that happened! But the next verse tells us that Paul raised Eutychus from the dead. The people must have been happy and amazed.
God gave Paul the ability to do wonderful miracles. These miracles helped people believe the message Paul preached. Today we can read about these miracles in the Bible. This helps us believe that God is powerful.
