Max Lucado – Stephen Remembered

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

The greatest example of humility is none other than Jesus Christ.  Who had more reason to boast than he?  Yet he never did.  He was utterly reliant upon the Father and the Holy Spirit.

What gift are you giving that he did not first give?  You love. But who loved you first?  You serve. But who served the most?  What are you doing for God that he could not do alone?  How kind of him to use us.  How wise of us to remember.

Stephen remembered.  As Stephen’s accusers reached for their rocks, he looked toward Christ. “Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God; he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand” (Acts 7:55).  Stephen stood on behalf of Christ, and in the end, Christ returned the favor.
