From Broken To Beautiful


I love Jesus. I love the local church because Jesus loves the local church. There are certainly lots of books about the local church and how the changing culture is impacting her. Why am I writing a book about the local church? The short answer is I am deeply burdened for her. The health of many local churches is sick. God is sovereign and we know that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church (capital C). We get the high honor of partnering with God to help the local church advance the Kingdom of God on earth. This is messy work. The local church is both broken and beautiful. She is broken because she is filled with messy people in the pew and preachers in the pulpit. The local church is beautiful because she is the Bride of Christ. Christ chose her and Christ alone makes her beautiful because of his relationship with her. He chose you and I to take part in the greatest organic and spiritual movement the world has ever experienced. God wants everyone to be part of his love story.
