Leaders who impact lives for eternity understand what it means to live on mission with Jesus. Stephen was such a leader. His love for Christ was deep, his knowledge of God’s truth was wide, and his responsiveness to the Holy Spirit earned him a reputation among his peers of being a cut above. Stephen also reminds us that our finest moment of Kingdom service may be our last … but its worth it! Stephen’s legacy isn’t measured by his life accomplishments. His impact can only truly be appreciated when you realize the defining influence he had on a young zealous Jewish man who witnessed and approved of Stephen’s execution.
