In the wake of Stephen’s martyrdom, we see:

  • The effects inside and outside the church
  • The escalating persecution of the church
  • The positive results God brought about through the persecution

We are challenged to be ready to face persecution if we live godly in Christ - but encouraged and comforted to see that the Lord will not forsake us at such times and that He has prepared a glorious inheritance in heaven for us who are His children.
