Summary: Paul had been in revival for 6 days. · This was the 7th and they broke the bread and Paul started preaching. · After preaching all day it was now midnight and the lamps were burning and Paul was just getting warmed up.
Acts 20: (New International Version) 7On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. 8There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting. 9Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. 10Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. "Don’t be alarmed," he said. "He’s alive!" 11Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. 12The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.

· This was Paul!
· The writer of 22 books in the Bible.
· The man who had an eye opening experience like nobody every saw.
The reason this man fell out is because he was more out then he was in.
If he had been more in then out he wouldn’t have fallen 3 stories.
