3-D Part 3

OK, I hope you have been challenged. I hope you have been in His Word. Have you?  Let's get to this last little piece.  Go back to Acts 7:57-8:1
This is pretty short so I will type it out for you so you don't have to go back and forth to a link. 
"At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him.  Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul.  While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."  Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.  And Saul was there giving approval to his death."
Did you catch it?  Did you see it?  Did you see who is on the side-lines?  Yes ma'am....Saul is standing there giving his approval and holding the coats of those doing this.  Oh my goodness!!!!  It's amazing to me to think of someone standing in the crowd watching something like this.  As I think about that I am convicted of the times that I have been a part of a conversation that was not uplifting of another or tearing someone down. The question is.....Did I say anything or get away from the situation.  Father forgive me! 
I praise the Lord for Saul who became Paul.  Showing me that the Lord can use even me.  Saul is tearing apart the church, putting men, women and children in prison UNTIL that wonderful face to face meeting on the Damascus road with Jesus.  Praise the Lord!!!!!  There is something about that face-to-face meeting with Jesus.  Precious, Powerful, Sweet. 
I hope you have enjoyed working through these verses as much as I have.  They are indeed powerful and something to pray and consider.  His Word is Powerful!!!!!  Dig In It!!!!!!!
