Acts 5:12-42
You Can't Stop God

This sermon was preached at Crosswater Community Church in Sultan, WA on 2/18/24 

Jesus told His disciples “it is to your advantage that I go away…” because doing so allowed for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are not to merely exist as passive believers waiting for the return of Jesus. Instead, as Christ-followers we are “Empowered” by the Spirit, enabling us to live a life characterized by boldness, unity, and unwavering faith in order to bring the transformative love and life of Jesus Christ to the world around us.

GOD cannot be stopped, and yet even HIS followers struggle to trust HIM, believe HIM and obey HIM, especially when things are bad. HE is faithful to complete the work HE begins in us (Phil. 1:6) so as the old song says, "Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in JESUS, but to trust and obey."
