Have you ever seen a city-wide Church? It’s the Church that Jesus sees when He looks at your city, the Church that’s made up of all those who are truly following Him. Usually this city-wide Church is invisible to us—one of the major goals of 10 Days is to make it visible, and in the process, reveal who Jesus is. We are His Body, after all!
While we are the Body of Christ on earth right now, Jesus Himself is physically in heaven, seated at God’s right hand. We know He’s coming back quickly; as some of us repeat every Sunday in the Apostle’s Creed “He is coming again to judge the living and the dead”. We know that “when we see Him, we will be like Him”.
Romans 8:23 speaks of this deep longing for Christ’s return when it says, “we groan inwardly, waiting eagerly for…the redemption of our bodies.” 10 Days is designed to bring that groan, which is already deep inside of us, to the surface.
It’s a longing for things to be as they should be.
It’s a mourning because of sin and brokenness in us and in the world which causes the daily devastation we’ve come to accept.
It’s a recognition that there’s only one who can satisfy, that there is only one who can Rescue.
It’s a heart-cry for Jesus’ return.
“How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.” Matt 9:15
