Jesus Came To Teach, To Love, And To Heal

Lord, do not hold this sin against them!

Acts 7:60

When Jesus came to earth, he became the model for all of us to become pleasing to his heavenly Father. Not only did he show us how to teach, to love and to heal, through his Incarnation, death, and resurrection, he dwells in us. Now the Holy Spirit offers us the same grace and power that was given to his disciples. St. Stephen, one of the first martyr’s was filled with faith and the Holy Spirit (Acts 6:5). 

In fact, through Jesus, he worked great wonders and signs among the people (Acts 6:8) and preached the good news. Just like Jesus, he was unafraid to face the Sanhedrin when they sought to kill him. Prior to his death he looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God and said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56). Ultimately, Stephen was stoned to death but not before forgiving his persecutors. “Lord, do not hold this sin again them!” 

I pray that I have the courage to be another Christ in the world today.
