Description: Courage is not the absence of fear, but the decision to act in spite of it. There are many examples in the Bible of people who demonstrated courageous faith, and Stephen is one of them. He courageously preaches and defends the Gospel of Christ even in spite of intense opposition. His example serves as a reminder that Gospel courage is something Jesus calls each of us to. What does it mean to be a courageous Christian? Where is courage found? The answer to both is found in Christ Himself, who will give us the peace we so badly need if we will heed his call to courageous faith!
