Response to biblical preaching
Stephen preached the truth of the Scriptures, but the Jewish leaders did not like it,
“When they heard these things they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth” (Acts 7:54).
The word of the Spirit is a sword, and it cut the hearts of those listening, and in rage against Stephen they gnashed at him.
What will they do when they face God in the Judgment?
