In today’s reading we are introduced to Stephen who was one of the seven chosen by the Apostles to supervise the distribution of food to the needy in the early church. Because Stephen was so filled with the Spirit, the religious leaders seized him under false accusations. Acts 6:15 describes what the Sanhedrin saw when Stephen came before them, All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intently at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of and angel. Stephen was filled with the Spirit because of his great faith. He had peace in knowing he was doing the work God had laid out for him. When we know we are in God’s will, we feel peace and have confidence we are where we need to be.
