Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting us, LORD.
We welcome you into this place.
51. "You stubborn people! You are heathen at heart and deaf to the truth. Must you forever resist the Holy Spirit? That's what your ancestors did and so do you!
52. Name one prophet your ancestors didn't persecute! They even killed the ones who predicted the coming of the Righteous One ⏤ the Messiah whom you betrayed and murdered.
53. You deliberately disobeyed God's law, even though you received it from the hands of angels."
54, The Jewish leaders were infuriated by Stephen's accusation, and they shook their fists at him in rage.
55, But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he saw Jesus standing in the place of Honor at God's right hand.
56. And he told them, "Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God's right hand!"
57. Then they put their hands over their ears and began shouting. They rushed at him
58. and dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. His accusers took off their coats and laid them at the feet of a young man named Saul.
59. As they stoned him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
60. He fell to his knees, shouting, "Lord, don't charge them with this sin!" And with that, he died.
Acts 7:51-60 NLT
I am so sorry.
My heart breaks for Stephen.
My heart breaks for Stephen's family.
My heart breaks for You.
Help those that are in situations of persecution in our world today.
Help us to know how to stand firm against ridicule for believing in You.
Thank You Jesus for coming and receiving Stephen, and us.
We love you.
