Stephen’s martyrdom and the un-killability of faithfulness (Growing Deeper with Acts 6:8 – 7:60)

The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly.

It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies.

This episode is the later—a more in-depth look at Acts 6:8 – 7:60, the martyrdom of Stephen, often called the first Christian martyr, who died by stoning. I picture broken teeth going into his mouth while words of grace were going out of it. We explore this moving story and also how it fortifies our own faith today.

In the longest speech in Acts, I highlight four themes embedded in Stephen’s words:

(1) God’s faithfulness in the past assures us of God’s faithfulness in the present; (2) Knowing the Scriptures well enable you to better apply God’s wisdom to your own modern life; (3) The beautiful power of Christlikeness; and (4) Faithfulness is never wasted.

Then or now.

The sermon based on this same text is called “Faithfulness is never wasted” and can be accessed here.
