But they cried out in a loud voice, covered their ears, and rushed upon him together. They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses laid down their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul. As they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them”; and when he said this, he fell asleep. Act 7:57-60
See now that I, I alone, am He, and there is no god besides Me. It is I who bring both death and life, I who inflict wounds and heal them, and from my hand no one can deliver. Deuteronomy 32:39
For the Son of Man will come with His angels in His Father’s glory, and then He will repay everyone according to his conduct. Matthew 16:27
Acts 7:57-60, Deuteronomy 32:39 & Matthew 16:27
We conclude our study of Chapter Seven of Acts finding the forgiveness God instills in we that are surrendered to the cause of freedom from sin hearing the last words of Stephen as the calling cry of God for all who confess Christ as their Savior: “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” People will fight to stay alive in the right to practice, pray and proclaim the One and Only True God. Many times we are unsure how to go about introducing someone to love, faith and hope of Charity no matter the place or situation.
You will see this in cities you travel to as much as the current place we all call home where people unbathed and many times intoxicated will refuse help as I for God implores you to smile on in Christ by His Exampled Forgiveness. Forgive and move on as Jesus reminds us to shake the dust of our feet at them and seek the peace in others welcome no matter how someone looks or smells finding a majority of those who are lost, lonely and languished need the smile you give as much as something cold to drink you may be carrying or the shoes on your feet. I give example today two of many I find on a daily basis in the roadmap of life seeking the beauty of giving what can be given again and again until the Light of Redemption comes on even if unnoticed.
I traveled to Atlanta this week to work with disabled veterans who either sit in a wheelchair without legs or arms or teeters on crutches and speaks of serving the ones who served for us and the freedom we feel here in the United States. I walked around finding many men and women who needed help in one way or another such as Mark who was sound asleep when noticed him sleeping sunburnt with arms peeling layer after layer of skin awakened by my call of love, “Are you thirsty my friend” as I handed him the fruit punch I was drinking.
He reached out silently grasping the cup with a nervous shake and began sucking on the straw. I asked, “What do you need?” Looking up at me he exclaims, “Oh please something to eat.” I said I would return leaving him to get a piece of pizza I had just enjoyed in Underground Atlanta. Returning with a drink and slice of pizza brought him to his feet in thanks. Asking his name I prayed with him and hugged him saying as I walked away, “God Bless You Mark.”
My last day in Atlanta had an early pick up call from a car service. The driver was waiting for traffic to pull out and proceed when a homeless one shoed man walked by limping. I looked at the driver saying, “Can you wait for one moment please?” I exited the car running to catch the man asking as I approached, “Hello brother do you need a pair of shoes?” He stopped looking at me with a laugh stating, “Are you kidding?”
I reached down and pulled off my shoes stating, “I’m a 10 1/2” handing them to him as I continued, “It looks like your size.” With a tears running and a smile on his face we instantly embraced holding one another with affection earnest in Christ.
I said, “Please pray with me” and I asked him his name. “Maurice,” he replied. We prayed and as I turned to leave I looked back at him stating, “God Bless You Maurice” and returned to the car in socks beginning a 7 AM day of walking through the airport singing godly songs in a dancing of peace. To act is to find grace in humble surrender knowing he needed the shoes more than I as the driver and I watched him leave finding a bounce in a step of new shoes in Charity’s Joy. Sharing Salvation is serving the Souls seen served. It’s easy in the trust we place in God as the reason we place God First for Life Eternal. Amen.
Let us pray Lord we pray for Mark and Maurice to find Jesus as the love love love they need for peace. Prayers for my Family of Goodwill across the world who listen on Roku devices and Closer Walk Media.com friends like Juliana Houser of Perth, Australia and Lance Richardson of Manchester (UK). Prayers for Dr. Cruz†Peluca OHAM. LORD from Acts 7:59 I chant for all families across the world, “As they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Acts 7 57 thru 60
Stephen stoned of his last breath
Together they lacked understanding wanting death
The Israelites seemed to mistake Christ for a fight
Saul witnesses cloak laying after Stephen stoned of his last breath
Spirit mine receive Jesus our Lord he yelled as Light
Them sin not hold against Lord they know not what is right
