A Daily Devotional
About keeping the faith in the face of Satan’s attack…
Acts 7:59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep. (NIV)
Stephen knew he was dying. Yet even in his last moment of life, with his last breath, Stephen asked for the forgiveness of those who were killing him. You have the same mighty spiritual power within you Stephen had. Your witness in life or even in your last breath can change lives like Stephen’s witness has done for two thousand years. You might not be a famous person. You might consider yourself a "nobody." However, in God’s eyes you are precious. Until you take your last breath, God's will is for the evil in your world to be defeated with His love and with His consuming grace. As Christ's witness, show the world how evil can be defeated with the same love and forgiving grace you keep within your heart.
