In Acts 6, we see the ordination of the first deacons. This was done so that the Apostles could be given wholly to the ministry. (Act 6:4) But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. Out of the chosen deacons; one stands out among the rest, Stephen. Even when the opposition arose, the Bible says that they could not resist the wisdom and spirit by which he spoke! In order for them to attempt to stop him from teaching and preaching, and seeing people saved, they had to make false accusations toward the godly deacon. Yet, while on trial, and being falsely accused, Stephen’s face was noted as being that of an angel! I pray that I will be so full of wisdom, and that the Holy Spirit will be so evident in my life that even the opposition cannot resist or deny the power of God on my life!
