Have you ever tried to stop the wind? How about rain or snow from falling or even the sun from shining? That's crazy, right? These forces of nature are unstoppable. Well how about the Gospel of Jesus Christ? As we'll see from Acts 5:17-42, no matter how hard some people try to stop it, the Gospel is an unstoppable force. And if you're a believer in Christ, you're living proof!
The book of Acts is a unique New Testament book in that its main purpose is to record a selective history of the early church following the resurrection of Christ. It is the second part of a two-volume work, with the Gospel of Luke being the first volume. In this series, we look at Luke's account of The Church that Jesus Builds and how it applies to Christ's church that He is building today.
