And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
Acts 7:59 ESV
As i read Acts 7 i am amazed & blessed to hear Steven tell the history of how God worked to develop a tight relationship with His people & how His people turned away.
Steve ended up being stoned to death that very same day, within moments of sharing the good news of Jesus (bringing things up to date, God’s salvation plan.
Then Stephen, like Christ, prays,
And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out,
“Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice,
“Lord, do not hold this sin against them.”
And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
Acts 7:59-60 ESV
LORD MAY WE BE FAITHFUL TO OUR VERY LAST BREATH TOO.
In Jesus name & for Christ sake,
