Tabitha’s Resurrection posted by John Sorensen on May 17, 2021
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
For the avid Bible-readers listening, do you remember Tabitha? Her story is found in Acts chapter nine, where it describes her as, “always doing good and helping the poor.” She is introduced as having a passion for others and a strong devotion for Christ. However, in the very next verse, it tells us that she became sick and died! Other disciples from her town heard that Peter was there and asked him to come quickly and see Dorcas. But, she had already passed away; and the people were mourning her. Peter got on his knees and prayed before turning to her and saying, “Tabitha, get up.” And praise be to God, she did! The story of Tabitha’s resurrection spread far and wide and many came to know Christ in her region because of it. Both in life and in death, Tabitha’s goal was to glorify God and share the Good News. She is an unsung hero of the faith! Let that be said of us as well. To learn more about sharing your faith, visit share life dot today.
