According to the Christian Seasons
8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great
wonders and miracles among the people. 9 Then there arose certain from
the synagogue which is called the Synagogue of the Libertines, and
Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and those of Cilicia and of Asia, and they
disputed with Stephen. 10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom
and the Spirit by which he spoke. 11 Then they suborned men who said,
"We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and
against God." 12 And they stirred up the people and the elders and
the scribes, and came upon him and caught him, and brought him to the
council. 13 And they set up false witnesses who said, "This man
ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place and the
law; 14 for we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth shall
destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered
to us." 15 And all who sat on the council, looking steadfastly on
him, saw his face as though it were the face of an angel.
54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the
heart, and they gnashed with their teeth at him. 55 But he, being full
of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory
of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, 56 and he said,
"Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at
the right hand of God." 57 Then they cried out with a loud voice,
and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, 58 and cast
him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their
clothes at the feet of a young man whose name was Saul. 59 And they
stoned Stephen as he called upon God and said, "Lord Jesus, receive
my spirit!" 60 And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice,
"Lord, charge not this sin against them." And when he had said
this, he fell asleep.
1 In Thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never
deliver me in Thy righteousness.
2 Bow down Thine ear to me, deliver me speedily;
be Thou my strong rock, a house of defense to save me.
3 For Thou art my rock and my fortress;
therefore for the sake of Thy name, lead me and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me,
for Thou art my strength.
5 Into Thine hand I commit my spirit;
Thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
6 I have hated them that have regard for lying
but I trust in the LORD.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy,
for Thou hast considered my trouble. Thou hast known my soul in
8 And hast not delivered me into the hands of the enemy;
Thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble;
mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. 10 For
my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing;
my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are
11 I am a reproach among all mine enemies,
but especially among my neighbors,
and a fear to mine acquaintances;
they that see me in the streets flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind;
I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many;
fear was on every side;
while they took counsel together against me,
they schemed to take away my life.
14 But I have trusted in Thee, O LORD;
I said, "Thou art my God."
15 My times are in Thy hand;
deliver me from the hand of mine enemies and from them that
16 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant;
save me for Thy mercies' sake.
17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD, for I have called upon Thee;
let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18 Let the lying lips be put to silence,
which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the
19 O how great is Thy goodness which Thou hast laid up for them
that fear Thee,
which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons
20 Thou shalt hide them in the safety of Thy presence from the pride
Thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of
21 Blessed be the LORD,
for He hath shown me His marvelous kindness in a stronghold city!
22 For I said in my haste, "I am cut off from before Thine
Nevertheless Thou heard the voice of my supplications when I cried
23 O love the LORD, all ye His saints!
For the LORD preserveth the faithful, but plentifully rewardeth the
24 Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the LORD.
Words of Worship - Psalm 118:26-27
Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD!
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
God is the LORD, who hath shown us light;
bind the sacrifice with cords,
even unto the horns of the altar.
16 "Behold, I send
you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as
serpents and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men, for they will
deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their
synagogues, 18 and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for
My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19 But when
they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak, for
it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it
is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaketh in
you. 21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the
father the child; and the children shall rise up against their parents
and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated by all men
for My name's sake, but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 23
But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another; for
verily I say unto you, ye shall not have gone through the cities of
Israel till the Son of Man be come.
Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 2:16
To fear the Lord is fullness of wisdom,
and filleth men with her fruits.
Morals & Values - Matthew 5:46-48
For if ye love them
that love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the
same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than
others? Do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even
as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect.
