Daily Reading Acts 6

Acts 6   Acts 6

*1* And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

*2* Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

*3* Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

*4* But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

*5* And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:

*6* Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.

*7* And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

*8* And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

*9* Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.

*10* And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.

*11* Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

*12* And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,

*13* And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

*14* For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.

*15* And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

About liv4Christ4ever

Seeking to promote true life through Jesus Christ by making the Gospel relevant to our lives today. Presenting the word of God as the final authority on how we as believers, hypocrites and those yet to believe should live in order to please our Creator. One thing is sure, the creature (all creation) was created for a purpose. We will do well by acknowledging our Creator and using His gift of free will to accomplish His purposes. According to scripture “Every knee will bow (Submission) and every tongue will confess (Confession)” to Jesus Christ the Lord. We just choose to submit and confess Christ’s Lordship daily that we might live with Him now and forever.

  1. There was complaint with the Grecians and Jews that the Grecians widows were neglected. they call for the disciples . but they could be taken away from the word of God. to serve tables,preaching the gospel is the best workthat a minister can do they choose seven men to serve

    tables. they were honest,and full of the Holy Ghost full of wisdom Stephen proved the truthof the gospel by working miracles in Christ’s name they thought they disputed with him but it was disputing the Spirit of God

    • Sounds like to me Nana that as the Lord add to the ministry we should be able to look out over the crowd and select men of honest report. Meaning the report of the crowd was that these men were honest, God fearing, workers and filled with the Holy Ghost. I must mention that these men didn’t select themselves and there was no disagreement in their appointment.
