PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Acts 20:7-12
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“On the first day of the week we came together to break bread.” (Acts 20:7)
The first Jesus followers made it their regular practice to meet on Sundays.
It was an obvious day to meet, since it was Jesus’s resurrection day.
This was not a matter of the law, but a matter of God-powered faith building.
When they met it was a spiritual experience, fellowship in the Spirit.
As Jesus followers we still meet with the Lord and each other to be renewed.
Whenever believers meet, Jesus is present with them in power (Matthew 18:20).
And things happen: people are encouraged, healed, restored, challenged – revival!
Why do you participate in your church gatherings?
Do you expect Jesus things to happen, or are your sleeping through it?
I can’t blame Eutyches for falling asleep – I would have too – but he needed revival!
But it makes me think about how engaged or distracted we are when we gather.
Is your church experience refreshing you, or lulling you to sleep?
The Spirit is present, and things are happening whether we see them or not.
Let’s pray for a Eutychus moment – being revived, not asleep – the next time we meet!
Lord, awaken us with your loving power the next time we meet, so that we may have a Eutychus moment too!
