Was the ministry of Steven a success? He preached, got dragged into court, and was stoned to death. But his life showed how it’s not up to us to decide in everything what is success and what isn’t. It’s up to us to get to know God, to hang on, to follow after him, to be obedient to him in every situation and to love each. Then, whatever happens … happens. Quit looking at things having to be what you want them to be for you to be happy about your life. Message delivered 12/06/09.
