In this passage from the book of Acts, we see in Stephen a life worth imitating. Stephen is an example in how he suffered for Jesus, showing that obedience was more important than any suffering he might endure. He is an example in how he spoke the truth in love, knowing that it might bring suffering. He is an example in how he willingly gave his life, knowing that God was with him and had a plan. Are we willing to follow the example of Stephen, preparing our hearts and lives for suffering that may come? From our Sunday service at Grace Bible Church of Bend.
