Psalm 63:3-5

Because Your loving kindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

When dealing with life and death issues it is always good to remember the perspective of Paul who said, "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21)

We have a tendency to think that death is the end, but really it is an incredible beginning. Our goal, as Paul so perfectly stated in the same passage, is "to magnify Christ in our bodies, whether by life or by death." Either way is victory!

God Bless You!

Q. Which disciple in the city of Joppa was raised from the dead by the apostle Peter?

Answer below.



"This world is the land of the dying; the next is the land of the living."

-Tryon Edwards


A city fellow came to a fork in a country road. "Hey, old-timer," he shouted to a farmer who was working out in his field. "I'm heading to Brownsville. Does it make any difference which road I take?"

The old man answered, "Not to me, it don't."



Q. Which disciple in the city of Joppa was raised from the dead by the apostle Peter?

A. Tabitha, translated Dorcas

At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did. But it happened in those days that she became sick and died...

But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, arise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.

Acts 9:36-40

What rejoicing there must have been for all Tabitha's loved ones, and for all the believers, to witness the power of God in such a mighty way!
