    Jesus doesn't promise He'll deliver us from our stresses (Tribulation), He does, however, promise to use our suffering for good, and offers an eternal weight of glory in return for our sacrifice.

    And to the Angel of the Church in Smyrna, write: These things says the first and the last, who died and came to life I know your tribulation (stresses) and poverty, but abudance And the blasphemy of those who claim themselves to be Jews and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan. Do not ...read more

    The would-be servant of God, whether waiting at table, ushering at the door, distributing to the poor, or preaching the gospel, must be of a blameless character and reputation.

    THE CHRISTIAN CHARACTER OF STEPHEN THE MARTYR. Acts 6:1-15. It is interesting to commemorate one particular saint who gave his name to a Street, a Road, a Church, and a bench (!) in Norwich, and I dare say in other cities too. Stephen is rightly acknowledged as the first Christian martyr, a ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 14,314 views

    Our word “MARTYR” is a transliteration of the Greek word for “WITNESS.” By their lives and by their deaths, the martyrs have borne witness for “JESUS CHRIST, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS.”

    Stephen is an example of living and dying (1) without fear, (2) without bitterness, (3) focused on Christ, (4)immersed in scripture.

    They say that two things are inevitable: death and taxes. The task of an accountant is to minimize the taxes people pay.

    So many Christians believe if they were given the choice to renounce Jesus or die, that they would choose torture and death, but would they really? If we cannot make small sacrifices now, we cannot hope to make bigger ones later.
