The Most Wondrous, Amazing (Slightly Strange) Show on Earth: Sleeping in Church
By Brad Quiring on August 25, 2019
The Power of God to Raise the Dead - Acts 20, 1 Corinthians 15. People have been falling asleep in church for centuries. It's most likely the preacher's fault. Even Paul's sermons dropped on poor young man not just into dreamland, but out of a third story window. What could have been a horrific tragedy, turned into another revelation of God's great power over death. And, after a few days, it probably gave everyone a good laugh. This story from Acts points to a great truth in 1 Corinthians 15: Jesus rose from the dead, therefore we will be raised from the dead. Tragedy won't become a good sermon illustration in this case, it is and will be our greatest hope. New life in Jesus.
