On the first day of the week, [Paul and his companions] gathered with the local believers [in Troas] to share in the Lord's Supper. Paul was preaching to them, and since he was leaving the next day, he kept talking until midnight. The upstairs room where we met was lighted with many flickering lamps. As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he fell sound asleep and dropped three stories to his death below. Paul went down, bent over him, and took him into his arms. "Don't worry," he said, "he's alive!" Then they all went back upstairs, shared in the Lord's Supper, and ate together. Paul continued talking to them until dawn, and then he left. Meanwhile, the young man was taken home alive and well, and everyone was greatly relieved.
— Acts 20:7-12 NLT
I can't think of a more vivid way to remember the power of the Lord's Supper and the resurrection of Jesus than to have someone fall out of a window and be raised from the dead. Paul certainly had a lot to say that night, and with a crowded room, oil lamps to make one drowsy, and the late hour, Eutychus fell to his death. But in the hands of Paul and by the power of the risen Jesus, Eutychus was raised back to life. Everyone went on with the service. For us, however, the Supper is a reminder. Each Sunday we can remember that because Jesus rose from the dead, we will also be raised as well!*
