But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!”

– Acts 7:55-56

Though it would not be appropriate to take this to mean that Jesus stands at all times to receive His witnesses (martyrs) into His presence, it certainly is a beautiful picture that Stephen (the first recorded Christian martyr) was welcomed into heaven by our Lord “standing at the right hand of God.”
