If you want to be a faithful witness, be prepared to have your faith tested. Todd preaches from Acts 7:54-8:1 about Stephen, a man of honor and faithfulness, who was tested and ultimately put to death for the message he delivered. Despite the criticism, Stephen saw, appealed to, and trusted Jesus. He was a faithful mailman delivering a faithful message about God. Likewise, we are here to suffer and serve the world, not to be celebrated by it.
