55 But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
59 And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
60 And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
To be so full of the Holy Spirit that you you see Jesus standing at the right hand of God and to be able to forgive. Stephen was a human just like each of us and he was able to do this, that should give us hope.
