7On the first day of the week, when we met to break bread, Paul was holding a discussion with them; since he intended to leave the next day, he continued speaking until midnight. 8There were many lamps in the room upstairs where we were meeting. 9A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window, began to sink off into a deep sleep while Paul talked still longer. Overcome by sleep, he fell to the ground three floors below and was picked up dead. 10But Paul went down, and bending over him took him in his arms, and said, “Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him.” 11Then Paul went upstairs, and after he had broken bread and eaten, he continued to converse with them until dawn; then he left.12Meanwhile they had taken the boy away alive and were not a little comforted. (Acts 20:7-12, NRSV)
Paul was talking so long that a young man fell asleep in the window and fell to his death! That is definitely one thing I have never done, not put someone to sleep, but had them fall to their death!
I am sure someone has fallen asleep while I was speaking though. But can you imagine someone talking about the gospel for that long?
Someone so enthralled with Jesus that they want to talk about Him and the good news for hours upon end?
Think of the subjects you can do this on, and then I wonder if Jesus is one of them and if He isn’t how can we change that?
Jesus should be the most enthralling topic you know so you want to talk about Him all the time.
