Acts 6:8-11

Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed great wonders and signs among the people. Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called)—Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as the provinces of Cilicia and Asia—who began to argue with Stephen. 10 But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke.

11 Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, “We have heard Stephen speak blasphemous words against Moses and against God.”

One response to “Acts 6:8-11

  1. It was not his speaking gifts, or his sound logic, but the wisdom of God, from His Spirit, that showed truth to these men. But they did not bow to truth, they concocted lies against him to bring him harm.

    We can neither change men, nor keep men from harming us. We can obey God, be used in His plan, and allow our lives to be His for His purposes.
