Philip Preaches in Samaria
Acts 9:36-41, NLT
36 There was a believer in Joppa named Tabitha (which in Greek is Dorcas). She was always doing kind things for others and helping the poor. 37 About this time she became ill and died. Her body was washed for burial and laid in an upstairs room. 38 But the believers had heard that Peter was nearby at Lydda, so they sent two men to beg him, “Please come as soon as possible!”
39 So Peter returned with them; and as soon as he arrived, they took him to the upstairs room. The room was filled with widows who were weeping and showing him the coats and other clothes Dorcas had made for them. 40 But Peter asked them all to leave the room; then he knelt and prayed. Turning to the body he said, “Get up, Tabitha.” And she opened her eyes! When she saw Peter, she sat up! 41 He gave her his hand and helped her up. Then he called in the widows and all the believers, and he presented her to them alive.”
• After providing leadership to the church in Jerusalem, Peter began travelling from town to town. What did he do when he arrived in Lydda?
• A group of people from Joppa heard he was in Lydda. Why did they want him to come to their town?
• When Peter arrived in Lydda, many showed people the clothing that Tabitha had made for them. Why did they do this?
• Tabitha had died. But when Peter prayed for her and then told her to, “Get up,” what happened?
Matthew 16:18, NLT – “Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
2022 Theme verses:
Colossians 2:6-7, NLT – “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
Prayer – Dear God, thank you that you did a miracle through Peter for Tabitha and her friends. This story reminds us of how much you love us and want us to love one another. You can even do the ‘impossible’ for us when we ask. Help my faith in you to grow.
