Day 14: Worth Remembering


I remember her NAME,

as every NAME has a REAL STORY

worth remembering.

DORCAS~

A REAL NAME

attached to a REAL PERSON

who is tucked away in the BIBLE

who is so worth remembering

that she also goes by the

NAME of TABITHA.

"In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas);

she was always doing good & helping the poor"*

Now you see why she is worth remembering as

"she was always doing good & helping the poor" *

But like everybody else she was not exempt from

REAL LIFE~

 "About that time she became sick & died,

& her body was washed & placed in an upstairs room"*

It only took one sentence to go from living to dying.

But this is only the beginning of her REAL STORY

because when a REAL GOD shows up

HE changes every

STORY

& this time HE used a well known man

NAMED PETER who was invited into her STORY~

"Peter went with them, & when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room.

All the widows stood around him, crying & showing him the robes & other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them"*

Was it really about the clothing?

"Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees & prayed.

Turning toward the dead woman, he said,

'TABITHA, get up.'

She opened her eyes, & seeing Peter she sat up.

 He took her by the hand & helped her to her feet.

Then he called for the believers,

especially the widows, & presented her to them alive"*

Oh this woman who is so worth remembering that she was known by 2 NAMES~

 "This became known all over Joppa, & many people believed in the LORD" *(Acts 9:36-42)

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

It may have taken the name of DORCAS or TABITHA

to get us to read a

REAL STORY~

but

 What NAME is really worth remembering?

"ONLY JESUS" (listen to the song below)
