Acts 6:8-15 – 8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. 9 Then there arose some from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and Asia), disputing with Stephen. 10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. 11 Then they secretly induced men to say, “We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.” 12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes; and they came upon him,seized him, and brought him to the council. 13 They also set up false witnesses who said, “This man does not cease to speak [r]blasphemous words against this holy place and the law; 14 for we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs which Moses delivered to us.” 15 And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel.
One of the greatest examples of faith we see in the Bible, in my opinion, is Stephen. It was faith that allowed him to do great wonders and signs, it was faith that allowed him to face his stoning while praising the Lord. But, what was his faith in? It wasn’t necessarily that the Lord would protect him from danger or harm, we know that he was stoned to death. It was faith that no matter what happened to him, he would spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord. That is the faith we must live; looking past our current situations and keeping our eyes on eternity. No, we don’t know what today may bring, but we can have faith that Jesus has already taken care of our tomorrow.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
