Have you heard about the very devoted Christian disciple of Jesus called Stephen? He was the first Christian martyr whose story was glamorously written in the Bible book of Acts.
In case you don’t know, a martyr is someone is a figure who is killed because of his or her devotion to a cause. Now I am not asking you to become a martyr in this post. No. In case you are already turning your back on this post.
I want you to learn a proven biblical principle of success and blessings from the life of the man called Stephen. You should take your time to read and study the story of this biblical figure.
Now let us go.
Biblical Principle of Success and Blessing from the Stephen Story
Stephen was an interesting disciple of Jesus Christ who performed tasks under the mighty power and inspiration of the Spirit of God.
His story shows us an interesting biblical principle of success and blessings which you and I can embrace to write our own Godly success stories on this earth. Please enjoy this faith story.
I want you to read some passages about this interesting guy from the book of Acts, “…and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit…” Acts 6:5.
“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people” Acts 6:8.
“Then there arose some from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen…disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke” Acts 6:9-10.
“And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel” Acts 6: 15.
Can you see those interesting things written about the person of Stephen by the writer of the book of Acts?
He was a Dedicated Christian
Stephen was a dedicated Christian who yielded his spirit, soul and body for the work and the cause of the Lord. In him, the Spirit of God found a ready and willing vessel He could reach out to the world with. You want to add those beautiful statements above to the interesting narration he gave the council about the history of Israel, the cause of Jesus which he was ready to die for in chapter 7. You will need to read that. Without looking into a book, he told the story putting his audience and the cause he was fighting for into perspective right from the time of Abraham!
Yielding you spirit, soul and body for the work and cause of our Lord Jesus Christ presents to you a proven biblical principle of success and blessing. God’s Spirit desire vessels who He can reach out to the world with. Vessels bursting with boldness and confidence. Are you ready to embrace this noble cause! Are you ready to yield your vessel to this worthy Christian cause?
You will do well if you do that. I am wishing you all the best.
