Back in 2010 there was a movie called “Unstoppable” which featured Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. The story was about a runaway freight train that needed to be stopped to prevent a catastrophe. The movie built to a climax as the characters tried to get the train to stop, but to no avail. I don’t want to give away the ending, but as you can probably guess: the train was actually stoppable after all. The heroes just had to come up with the right plan about how to stop it.
This Sunday we are going to be reminded of the unstoppable power of God. And unlike this movie, God literally cannot be stopped. Right now we are in a series called “Acting Up” where we are looking at the Acts of the Apostles, and throughout this book we are reminded again and again that God cannot be stopped. The church faced serious persecution in the book of Acts, but God was never stopped. And two thousand years later, His Gospel continues to spread!
Come on out to The River this Sunday to hear about the unstoppable power of God as we take a look at Acts 5.
