Good Morning my friends,
What a powerful messages that Stephen delivers in Acts 7!! His message is Biblical, spiritual and personal. In his message we hear what Stephen has to say. Stephen knows the Old Testament. After giving a survey of Old Testament history, he turns to the listeners, ” ye stiff necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost….” People may resist God’s offer of grace. After their attack on him you’re able to see what Stephen sees in verse 55-56. He looks up all the way into glory and there’s Jesus now standing to welcome
His faithful deacon home. He closes out with “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit… Lay not this sin to their charge.” Where did Stephen get that? Surely he heard about the words of Jesus on the cross.
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. (Luke 23:34”
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU…. Ask the Lord to help you be like Him in life and in death..
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day… Blessings & much love….D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
