Reflections for May 18 , 2014

Acts 7:55–60

The early church was not without its detractors. This scripture recounts the death of Christianity’s first martyr, Stephen. Stephen was killed after offering a great witness to the love of God. He was not afraid to die. He had courage – courage that led him to share his controversial message and courage that he would be united with Christ in death. While we aren’t all called to be martyrs, we can all be emboldened to share the message that God loves all of God’s people.

This week – learn more about Stephen or another martyr of the church, including martyrs of the modern era.
