January 31, 2016 – In Acts 7 Stephen is defending himself by addressing the four accusations that were falsely put against him. He is meeting before the 70 members of the Sanhedrin, made up of religious rulers and scholars. Stephen is making the point that in spite of the wonderful things God did to reach out to His people they still rejected Him and sought their own way. Yet, God continued to show mercy. Why? Because He saw the cross on time’s horizon. Just as God showed mercy to man in anticipation of the cross, so also God shows mercy to us because of what He did for us at the cross.

Moses provides another great illustration of what happens when man’s failures comes in contact with God’s mercy.
