Opposition to the Church on Mission
Sermon Slides – Click here
The Character of Stephen
Powerful Christians are people known for grace.
The Courage of Stephen
Wisdom from God overcomes opposition from the world.
The Countenance of Stephen
False accusations fall flat for a true friend of God.
Living on Mission:
The church of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
faces opposition with character and courage.
- Are you known as a person of grace?
- Do you have power in your witness?
- Spend some extra time with God this week and see if anyone notices.
