Acts 6
(what’s behind the stoning of Stephen; it cannot be as simple as being a Christ-follower)

5 C’s
1. Christian CREDENTIALS
– given wisdom by the Holy Spirit
– face was like a face of an angel
2. man of COMPREHENSION
– he tells about the truth; what things are
– he has the grasp of truth
– he knows the story of God
– he knows God intimately
– in reality, when people ask us why Jesus is the only way & how it is so, our answer or knowledge on it determines how we seek God and have come to know Him, especially when people aren’t really interested in knowing our answer and they just want to question our faith.
– full of the word of God
3. COURAGE
– it’s one thing to know the scripture, to have been able read it and quote it, but it’s another to say right off what being a Christ-follower is.
4. CONVICTION
– how Christian are you?
– how firm one is in his/her faith in Christ
– FAITH WITHOUT WORK IS DEAD

Philippians 1:6
(WHAT OUR LIVES WILL BE LIKE, EACH DAY WE FOLLOW CHRIST)

Acts 6:7
(comes out in times we’re most unaware of)

5. CHRIST-LIKENESS
