UNSTOPPABLE

UNSTOPPABLE

The Spirit Unleashed in the Book of Acts

The Book of Acts is one of the wildest books in the Bible. It tells stories and describes events that are so unfamiliar to our lives and experiences as people of faith. There are miraculous prison escapes, appearances by angels, ordinary people suddenly speaking in languages they’ve never learned, rousing speeches that either convince or infuriate huge crowds… and an unwavering sense of hope.

The book is exciting, because it tells a story in which anything seems possible now that the Spirit has arrived and a new day has dawned. Acts urges us to dream bigger and expect more.

Acts, if we ask the right kinds of questions, has a way of igniting our imaginations about the character of the Christian message, the work of God’s people (the church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and changing world.

In this series we’ll take a deep dive into the story of the early church and the remarkable spread of the gospel from Jerusalem, to Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Today, we continue to be God’s witnesses and have a vital role in the continuing story of Jesus’s unstoppable kingdom.

Acts for Everyone, Part One (The New Testament for Everyone) | N.T. Wright

Writing in an accessible and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke’s Gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke’s work draws us all into he story, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the story as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.
