Paul’s Third Trip (2)

Paul was in the city of Troas. He met together with some Christians in a room on the third floor. While Paul was preaching, a young man named Eutychus was sitting in a window. Paul talked for a long time, and Eutychus became sleepy. Finally Eutychus went to sleep. He fell out of the window to the ground and died. Paul went to Eutychus and brought him back to life again. This was a miracle! God gave Paul the power to do this wonderful miracle.
I imagine that when Eutychus woke up, he was happy to be alive. But Eutychus was only one of the very few people who have ever died and lived again. Even Eutychus eventually faced death again. Death is part of God’s plan for all people.
But the wonderful news is that Christians don’t have to face spiritual death (separation from God). Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for our sins. Through His death, our sins are forgiven. Isn’t that wonderful? We should be even happier than Eutychus was!
Thank God today for His wonderful gift of salvation through Jesus!
