SERMON III. ST. STEPHEN. Preached on St. Stephen's Day. Acts vii. 59, 60. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Yesterday, we kept the festival of our Lord's birth, one of the highest festivals in the whole year. To-day we keep another festival; we commemorate the martyrdom of the first martyr, St. Stephen. And it seems a very fit arrangement, that that eminent saint, who was the first to lay down his life for Christ, should be placed the "nearest to Him in the Church's Calendar. Let us go over the history which is left us of St. Stephen, and then gather out of it, with God's help, such instruction as itsets before us. And may God dispose us to lay that instruction to heart, and stir us up to follow in the footsteps of his servant, even as he followed in the footsteps of Christ. St. Stephen was one of the seven deacons whom the Apostles appointed, within a very little time after our Lord's ascension, to relieve themselves of a part of the burthen which fell upon them, in the discharge of their office. He had, even in his private capacity, drawn men's eyes towards him, by the eminent measure of divine grace which dwelt within him. He was " a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost." And now the office in which he was placed put him forward still more. The Gospel had already begun to spread extensively in Jerusalem, and they who hoped to have crushed it by putting its Founder, our Lord Jesus Christ, to death, saw it, on the contrary, rising up with increased energy, and gaining fresh converts, day by day. Stephen was very active in preaching Christ, and God enabled him to work many miracle...
