Light Reflection-Acts 9:36 Faithful Service

November 15th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – This week, our Light Reflections examine some of the bright spots in the book of Acts when God was on the move in the hearts of people.

One of those places was in Acts 9:36 through the witness of a woman named Tabitha.

She was always doing good and helping the poor. When she died, Peter went to the place where she died. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Tabitha had made while she was still with them.

What happened next was a miracle. Peter said, “Tabitha, get up.” He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. This miracle became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.

Tabitha’s faith was active and radiant with acts of service that blessed people and glorified God.

This Light Reflection inspires us to serve the Lord faithfully with the breath and strength that He gives us in the Year to Shine.
