Fruit of the Spirit: Choosing Faithfulness

Last week, as I was thinking about the story of Stephen in Acts chapters 6-7, the thought, “Stephen is a great example of faithfulness,” came to my mind. How perfect that “faithfulness” was the topic of my next blog post.

I would have to say that Stephen truly is the definition of faithfulness.

Acts 6:8-10 Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, did great wonders and miraculous 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. These men began to argue with Stephen, but they could not stand up against his wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke.
