10 Days Vision

Matthew 9:15 - And Jesus said to them, "Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.”

10 Days is a way to reveal and advance the unity of the Body of Christ in your region Ephesians 4:4 “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope…”
10 Days is intended to bring together Christians from many different traditions, denominations, and ethnicities of a region to seek God together.  While a larger body of believers can’t meet together as a city or region daily or weekly, an annual season of joining together is attainable and beneficial.
Since we can only be one “in Christ”, the unity we seek is centered around the person of Jesus Christ.  Praying for and with one another, leads to loving one another more. Ultimately, unity is nothing more or less than love for one another empowered by the Holy Spirit!
10 Days is rooted in the historic and biblical Christian faith as expressed most simply through the Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds.  

10 Days is an opportunity to deepen, refine, and mature followers of Jesus
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth...”
10 Days is a time of focusing our attention on God and unplugging from the world, even from good things like food, work, or entertainment.
It’s like a spiritual overhaul, an extended time of letting God check “what’s under the hood”.  Often, this can result in incredible personal transformation.  God wants the Church to be a “pure and spotless bride.” 10 Days is an opportunity for God to move us into that identity as never before.  10 Days can be a catalytic season for groups and individuals, leading to refreshed love, renewed faith, deepening in the knowledge of God, and new callings and ministries being released.

10 Days is designed to stir-up longing for the return of Jesus  Rom 8:25 “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance…”
While longing for Christ’s return is a basic concept in Scripture, it’s something that has not been a focus for many of us.  Jesus is not coming back to “marry” a Church that’s indifferent to his return.  He’s coming back for a Bride that’s “eagerly waiting” and desiring His return.  The specific details of Christ’s return can be controversial and we’re not promoting a specific theological perspective on this issue. The overriding reality is this: Christ will come again and his followers are to “long for and hasten” his coming (2 Peter 3:12).
