Today I present the 19th day of this Bible art challenge!
Found Acts 6: 8-15; 7:1-54
Stephen was one of the appointed seven, from the 12 disciples, who saw that the discipleship was getting larger. He was described as having a strong faith in God and being filled with the Holy Spirit. He was accused of blasphemy because He said Jesus is the Christ.
There are quite a few names in the Bible that begins with S but few them of them end well. Saul who turned to Paul is an exception. Stephen is the only one I’ve seen so far that started good but ended good. No he didn’t end well, (he was stoned to death), but he was able to forgive people for their wrongdoing even until death like the Lord Jesus Christ. I admired that and I hope to continue to bless God even in the worst of times, I will praise Him.
For the love of God and art!
