Humpty Dumpty – “Which way are you leaning?”

“And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.”
Acts 20:9

Remember the old short poem:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Well Eutychus sat on a wall and had a great fall. He sat in the window and fell asleep, by not taking heed to the Word of God. We must learn from his grave mistake before we too fall so greatly. We must awaken out of our sleep and leave our slumber at once. The reason he fell was because he was leaning more outside than he was inside. He was leaning more to the world instead of to the Word. As long as you are inclining yourself to the Word , you will stay in the house but if you lean to the world you will fall out. Far too many people today are falling out to a spiritual death because they hunger for the world more than the Word. Don’t make that mistake my friend! How shall a young man cleanse his way, by taking heed to the Word of God. The good news is the Kings men were able to put Eutychus back together again because our King has the power to raise up the dead. So if you find yourself asleep or even dead call out to Jesus and He will put you back together again!
