A Broken Heart

I have been thinking a lot about what Coastal Community Church is all about this morning. I don’t know if you are like me but when I am thinking about something that is all that I can do, think and talk about. Well in the midst of thinking about the church I was reminded of this quote

“A dangerous church will be less about a breakthrough idea and more about a broken heart.”

It got me thinking that while strategies, great series, cool music and even good preaching are great but if we don’t have a broken heart for those who have yet to hear the life-giving message of Jesus Christ then we will never be that dangerous church that God intends for us to be. I know that more than anything I want the heartbeat of Coastal to be the lost and hurting around us that are searching for the hope of the world, which is Jesus. We have to be a place that is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that the people in our community have multiple opportunities to hear the message of Christ to find the hope, grace, mercy, peace, restoration, relationship and life they are looking for.

So my question for each one of us is “What does your heart break for?”
