DAILY DEVO...are you a Dorcas?

In today's Scripture reading we read about Dorcas (Tabitha). Now here is a lady who was a Follower of Christ, a Disciple, the Bible says. 

Dorcas was the very example of what we, as Christ Followers, should be. 

She was full of acts of charity. 

(Acts 9:39) "Peter rose and went with them. When he arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping and showing tunics and other garments that Dorcas made while she was with them."

Prior to Peter's arrival that day, Dorcas had become very ill and she actually died. When the other disciples learned of her death, they went to get Peter and after he prayed, he said to the limp body, "Tabitha, arise."

She came alive.

(Acts 9:40b) "And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up."

You and I may not see people physically raised from the dead these days, but spiritually speaking, Dorcas represents what you and I as Followers of Christ should be.

We should be found giving to others selflessly and we should die to self and rise up and be alive for the cause of Christ.

Are you a Dorcas in your world?
