A life for Christ is a life worth living.

12 But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake. 13 This will be your opportunity to bear witness. 14 Settle it therefore in your minds not to meditate beforehand how to answer, 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. – Luke 21:12-15 (ESV)

A testimony for Christ is a word worth speaking.

A death for Christ is a death worth dying.

It seems likely that Christ stands either as his heavenly advocate or to welcome His first martyr. – Stott

  • Death will expose you
  • Even death is accomplishing God’s purposes in the gospel
  • Death is coming to us all

If Stephen had not prayed, The church would not have had Paul. The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church. – Augustine

Chris Daukas
