In this teaching, we hear from Pastor Mike as he talks about Stephen who became the first Christian martyr and how when you are under attack how can you remain faithful to God. How do we make it through leadership storms? When you choose the be a leader you're signing up for trouble. Why? Because there are people in this world who love to punch up. No expert is smart enough. No boss or pastor can be good enough. That's why good followers make good leaders.
Jesus tells us to submit to our leaders, even bad leaders. We choose grace over fairness. We choose to give respect even when it's not earned. That may sound like we're weaker, but it makes us stronger.
