The church of Jesus Christ has been here for 2,000 years. It has faced countless trials and persecutions and it persisted, because it is the beloved bride of Christ. But it is made of people, us, and we can get…complacent. You see, the biggest threat to the church is not from outside, but from within. It is our entitlement, our lack of understanding that this is God’s church, and it’s unstoppable-ness is not from us (nope! we are very stoppable!) It is the power of the Holy Spirit.
The church is a working church, not yet heaven where we will find rest. It is a vessel…not a cruise ship! Listen to the songs of worship, sing them loudly (even if alone!), pray along with us, listen to the very words of God preached and worship the one who made the Church unstoppable!
(Even though, alas, this is the final message of the Unstoppable series.)
