Trouble arises over feeding and providing for the Greek and Jewish women, so the apostles choose several godly men including Stephen. Stephen later opposes religious works as a means to salvation and it leads to his death. Jesus opposed salvation by works too and it led to his death. Religion is built around the thought that God owes us something, because we have done the right things. But religion develops an arrogance before God, rather than a humility. We need to ensure we don't develop this arrogance, but rather a humility to approach God on his terms, through the Lord Jesus.
