9 And there sate in a window a certaine yong man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deepe sleepe, and as Paul was long preaching, hee sunke downe with sleepe, and fel downe from the third loft, and was taken vp dead.
24 But none of these things mooue me, neither count I my life deare vnto my self, so that I might finish my course with ioy, & the ministery which I haue receiued of the Lord Iesus, to testifie the Gospel of the grace of God.

Why is the part "with joy" omitted from many of the translations? Could it be that we have a difficult time associating suffering and self-denial with having joy? Maybe Paul wanted to convey that he did not count his life in the world as important because he wanted to be able to be a cheerful giver of himself to the Lord.

Nowhere in the four gospels does it state that Jesus rose from the dead on the "first day of the week". All gospels leave no doubt as to the time and day of the discovery of our Savior's empty tomb. Also there are no instructions or examples, in GOD'S word, of Christians celebrating the discovery of HIS empty tomb on Sun day morning. GOD Bless.

We have to thank the Apostle Paul for his faithfulness to the ministry, and how he could say that I am free from the blood of all men. Paul could say that because he did not hesitate to preach the whole council of God. Today ministers are caught up in the struggle to be politically correct, but the most important thing is to make sure that we are preaching the whole council of God. Just as the Holy Spirit testified to Paul that bonds, and afflictions awaits me in every city, we must finish the race that God has given to us. Being sure not to covet any silver, gold, or apparel of any man, rather we can work with our hands so that we can give to those who have needs. By doing this we become a model to the flock of God how that it is more blessed to give, than to receive. May the Lord bless all of those who are working in His vineyard, and whatever is right God will pay.

I now commend you to the Lord our God, Jesus Christ His Grace, who is able to build us all up and also give us inheritance, if we continue grounded in FAITH of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

I really donít know what to say, I feel like I have not myself have done anything for the lord. When I read about Paul and all the others, how much they loved one another it made me cry. When Paul did not care for himself, but wanted to do God's work I say to myself I want to do more. I read how little Paul and other had; but could not wait to get to the next town. I think now I will have a hard time feeling sorry for myself. I [will] stop and thank God for what I do have. God bless all of you.

Hi, The Romans changed the measurement of a day to be from midnight till midnight. GOD'S "first day of the week" is from sunset Saturday evening till sunset Sunday evening. Therefore this meeting could only have been on Saturday evening and then Paul left Troas on Sunday morning. Paul did not rest, worship, keep holy, or celebrate the discovery of our Savior's empty tomb on the Roman Sun day morning or the Sun day evening. This was a onetime meeting that took place over 25 years after our Savior's crucifixion. See Havdalah, The "first day of the week" always reads "One of Sabbaths" in the original Greek. GOD Bless, Jackie.

I have shown you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.(Acts 20:35) Also, I Thessalonians 5:14.
My son was talking to me about one of his video games. He said the outcome for the character you choose depends upon how much support you give that character. Depending upon how much support you can build up and give to that particular character, directly affects the outcome for that character in the game.
We are commanded to support the weak. We can directly affect the life of people by how much support we give them.
Jesus came to support the weak. He has directly affected our lives. By His support, we are made strong. By His support, we live. By His support, the broken are made whole, the lame walk, the blind see, the poor have the gospel preached unto them.
We can directly affect the lives of people by the support we give.
