    Stephen brings up eight charges against his accusers. His sermon was what ultimately led to his death.

    Last time we saw that Stephen was seized and dragged before the Sanhedrin and put on trial. We closed chapter 6 seeing a heavenly glow showing from Stephen’s face, indicating that God’s presence was there. Tonight we begin a very long chapter 7 and we look a little closer at ...read more

  • Where Does God Live? Series

    Contributed by Chuck Sligh on May 3, 2015
     | 6,789 views

    Stephen's Acts 7 defense before the Jewish leaders is a masterful theological treatise on the presence of God. But it was a message with ominous implications to these power-hungry leaders. Stephen's message has applications to us today 2000 years later.

     | 4,974 views

    Passages in different locations are often interconnected in such a way that one avenue of thought springs from another. Although these psalms were not written with the intent that they be interconnected by us today, they collectively express a message relevant today.

In recent personal studies I have found the psalms to be richer and more thought-provoking than I had fully appreciated. I had too often swept swiftly through psalms without slowing down to inquire as thoroughly as ...read more
