Plenus Gratia | Full of Grace

"Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed amazing miracles and signs among the people." - Act 6:8 (NLT)


Because Stephen's relationship with God was so close through prayers and personal offerings, Stephen was always filled with the Holy Spirit so he always faced any difficulties calmly. Stephen did not give up easily every time he found hardships and difficulties  because Jesus whom he believed had given him strength and courage. 

With cruelty Stephen was slandered and brought before the religious court where false witnesses gave false testimonies. At last Stephen was martyred for Christ, whom he believed and loved. In his loving surrender to God, his face changed as angel's.

What about us, do we spent time to seek God in our daily lives which are so busy with worldly cares? I believe even if it is just one minute with God, if we pray and talk to him with faith, I am sure from that fountain we will draw strength, courage and abundant love for ourselves and for all those in need.
