By Ramone - August 20, 2008
There's a lot that can be said about this picture. It came as I was worshiping with my family at Jesus Family Center (church), singing a song in Japanese about asking the Lord for His heart, asking Him to heal the land and bring revival. I saw a picture of Jesus giving us His heart...
And it's too big for us: bigger than our walls will allow. They're creaking, they're breaking. We've asked for Him for so long (thank You, Lord!) and He is coming to answer our cry! But as Mike Bickle wrote, before He is coming for the Church, He is coming to the Church. Before He comes to bring us resurrection bodies, He is coming for our hearts. Before He gives us Himself at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, He wants to give us His heart -- He wants us to accept His heart.
It is going to break us.
Break our hearts, Lord, break our hearts with Your heart. Break our walls. Give us so much of Your heart, Lord, that it is painful, in Jesus' name. Let Your love make our walls come crashing down so that the world may know Father has sent You, that You are the One, that it is all about You and not about us, and that we may pour out our lives for You and for the ones You love so much. In Jesus' name I ask: COME, LORD! Amen!
