Eutychus (pronounced yoo’-too-khos and means fortunate)
Raised From the Dead at Troas (Acts 20:7-12)
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. 10 Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “He’s alive!” 11 Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. 12 The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
Acts 20:7-12 is Pastor David’s favorite passage of scripture.
Three Lessons we learn from Acts 20:7-12
1. From Paul: No boring sermons
2. From Eutychus: Do not fall asleep on our faith
3. From the congregation at Troas: Do not always believe what we see. See through faith.
