Though it may be unpopular today to proclaim absolute truth, those who love God and people will not refrain from doing so! Stephen’s sermon in Acts 7 reveals his love for God’s Word. He either alludes to or quotes from the Old Testament nonstop. He does not hesitate to make clear, direct application of the Scripture (verse 51) that upsets his hearers. Was this due to insensitivity on his part? Verse 60 seems to indicate the contrary. He spoke the truth to them because he loved them!
As we gradually move into full-time deputation we ask you to pray that God would send us to just the right churches to partner with us in “speaking the truth in love” in French-speaking Québec!
“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:” (Eph 4:15 AV)
