In his song “After the Music Stops” Lecrae asks a poignant question:
“After the show, after the set, after the music stops what’s next?
Will there be fellowship, prayer, disciples, will you open your bibles after the music stops.
After it’s over, after it ends, after the music stops, what then?
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing?”
In this message we come to the end of Paul’s life and the book of Acts.
But in the words of Charles Spurgeon, “Luke did not write [Acts] simply to record ancient history. He wrote to encourage the church in every age to be faithful to the Lord and carry the gospel to the ends of the earth.”
Paul finished strong but God’s story and His mission continues.
And this leads to the question for all of us: After the sermon series stops, what’s next?
