Acts 7:23-25 King James Version (KJV)
23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.
24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.

Acts 7:23-25 Amplified Bible (AMP)

23 But when he reached the age of forty, it came into his heart to visit his brothers, the sons of Israel. 24 And when he saw one [of them] being treated unfairly, he defended the oppressed man and avenged him by striking and killing the Egyptian. 25 He expected his countrymen to understand that God was granting them freedom through him [assuming that they would accept him], but they did not understand.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

23 Stephen is still referring to Moses. This just was put on his heart it was not the Lord speaking to him as He did at the burning bush. Moses would have a heart for his people from then on we see that when we speaks as a representative for them before the Lord.

24 Often times we do the same without Godís direction we have good intentions but we end up doing something bad out of them because we have no guidance. Moses killed the Egyptian because of the treatment to the Israelite the Lord was the one that would handle this in time thru the plagues it was not Moses job to defend them and we are let God deal with others as well.

25 God would deliver them but their faith in the Lord had gone away because of their bondage. Moses wanted to pull the people to the Lord but doing acts of sin is not the way to do that, Moses murder to bring people to the Lord not the best of decisions.

To be persecuted is to follow after Christ.
