Stephen – A Word of Forgiveness

Download (right click and choose save as)

What word might be more associated with Christians than forgiveness? Yet, how often are we portrayed or even seen as exactly the opposite? Judgmental, hypocritical… We talk often of forgiveness- which is the act of undoing wrongs that have been done. For Stephen, he forgave even with his final breath. His last words were, “Father, don’t hold this sin against them.”  Hear how we, too, can forgive up until our last words.

FIL Ministries helps people reach up to God, reach in to each other, and reach out to the world. One of the ways we do that is by providing relevant, helpful, and meaningful messages each week based in the Scriptures, which we believe to be the inspired Word of God. We keep those messages available online at We also make our whole services available online at
