Stephen..


Speaking the Truth.  Acts 6:5-8:3.

Stephen was the first Christian Martyr of the Ekklesia, he died like his Lord Jesus on trumped up aligations. But he was not murderd because he had faith, but rather because he told the people hearing and questioning him a truth that they could not bear to hear.

Today many people go the Church, Mass for many other reasons that actually have to do with Jesus. We find that we can end up keeping dates and celebrating festivals through the year, without knowing why we are doing so. This is the dangers of becoming religious and keeping traditions.

Christianity and the New Life are dynamic events, that are supposed to continue in us and be seen by others. Loving those who hate us, not reacting to provocation, forgiving those who persecute us and may even kill us.

Psalm 26:3,  71:19,   Acts 20:24,  Hebrews 8:12,  1 Peter 3:8,  2 Peter 1:7.
