    Stephen, A Man Sold Out (Matt Albritton)

    Stephen, A Man Sold Out (Matt Albritton)

    In today's powerful sermon titled "Stephen: A Man Sold Out," we dive deep into Acts 7:54-60 to explore the final moments of Stephen's life. As the first Christian martyr, Stephen's unwavering faith and steadfast commitment to God amidst persecution provide profound lessons and inspiration for all believers.

    Join Pastor Matt Albritton as we examine:


    The courage and conviction Stephen displayed even in the face of death.
    The significance of Stephen’s vision of Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
    How Stephen's prayer for his persecutors mirrors the heart of Christ.
    The impact of Stephen's martyrdom on the early church and its relevance to us today.

    Scripture Reference:
    Acts 7:54-60 (NIV)
    54 When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. 55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” 57 At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, 58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. 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.
