God’s first commandment to human beings was “be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth.” Jesus told His disciples something similar: “Go into all the world and make disciples…” In creation and redemption, we are hardwired for fruitfulness, expansion, and growth.
There are so many stories that accumulate over 10 Days in God’s presence. Multiply that over 35 different locations with thousands of people seeking God’s face, and that’s a lot of stuff happening. Over the next weeks, we’ll highlight stories from the various cities that did 10 Days as we reflect on the goodness of God.
The 10 Days vision is a call to 10 Days of “mourning, fasting, and repentance.” Needless to say, that hasn’t always been the most attractive message to people.
In sharing this vision with others, I’ve often heard it said, “Can we get rid of the mourning part?” I raise my hands, helpless. You see, when God gives you a vision, you can’t just go changing it all the time, even if you want to.
