Following Jesus just might get your head caved in. Thankfully, probably not! But that’s the story of Stephen, the first Christian Martyr. And in that beautiful act of sacrifice we see that when we are suffering most deeply, we experience Christ’s presence most sweetly. Gripped by the fact Jesus paid it all to save him, Stephen was motivated to pay it all to serve Him. You can listen to this message from Acts 6:8-7:60 here.
Funny that the next day I broke my nose, not for the sake of the gospel but for the fun of boxing (& a certain young man’s forehead!). BTW, he looked sweet for prom.
