This Sabbath July 13 at Richardson- “When Life is Cut Short”

All of us have gasped in shock at the news of an untimely death, shaking our heads and wondering why some child or spouse was ripped away from their family so soon. How do we process this kind of news? Perhaps the story of Stephen in Acts 6-7 can help us.

We don’t know how old deacon Stephen was when he was mowed down by a volley of rocks thrown by a group of religious leaders (see Acts 7). But we do know that it wasn’t God’s will for him to die that day even though prophecy was being fulfilled (see Daniel 9:24-27). On that fateful day both Stephen, the individual, and the Sanhedrin council, the governing body of the Jewish nation, were making final decisions on their future fate.

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we explore “When Life is Cut Short” in our study of Acts 6-7. During our three-month journey through the Book of Acts & related Epistles you’ll find a life purpose so exciting that suffering doesn’t discourage you!

“When they heard these things they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” Acts 7:54-56.
