Martyrdom and Forgiveness

The first martyr showed amazing character reminiscent of the Lord Jesus Christ and honoring to His love and grace.

Today’s reading:

Acts 7:1-8:25

My selection:

Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. 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 7:58-60
