Acts 6: 3, 5: “’But select from among you, brethren, seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task.’ … and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit.” So, you wanna serve the Lord? You wanna be a deacon? Where do you start? You’d have to start where St. Stephen did: four times (Acts 6: 3, 5, 10, and 7: 55) it says he was full of the Holy Spirit; thrice (Acts 6: 3, 5, and 10) it says he was full of wisdom, which comes from the Spirit (1 Corinthians 2: 10-16), so you might as well say that seven times he is noted as being full of the Spirit. For divine ministry, you do like Stephen and even Jesus Christ did - you start with the Holy Spirit (Mark 1: 10), you end with the Holy Spirit (Luke 23: 46), and everything in between is about the Holy Spirit, too (Acts 10: 38). Happy Feast of St. Stephen!
