What's It All About?

Operation 10:14 is a project based off of Romans 10:14-15.
“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how
are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to
hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are
sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the
good news!’”
We find it very important to make the Gospel known among
every people group and nation. Our ultimate goal is to praise God and have God
be worshiped! Follow us as we do our best to accomplish The Great Commission.

The Cross Stained Red

An Upsurge of Generations (Part 2):
The Cross Stained Red
            The blood ran down His body and onto the cross, seeping deep into the wood. The crowd roared as the Romans crucified His body. All of history built up to this one moment. Everything would change from there on out. His cry roared out above the crowd. His agony was bouncing back and forth in His body.
            As Jesus hung He lifted up His head saying the greatest words ever said, “It is finished”. His head bowed and His spirit lifted. Dead. No life.     
            One day went by, then the next, and finally the third day came. Air propelled deep into His lungs. His lungs expanded. His heart began beating faster and faster.  He has risen! He broke the chains, rolled away the tomb, shattered, and crushed, destroyed, broken the sin that lies within our hearts!
            Our sin is demolished under Jesus’s feet. The stains of sin have been covered by the stain of the cross. Past, present and future sins, mistakes, and failures have been completely washed away. “It is finished”.
            Nothing, nothing can separate us from love of God,  
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8: 37-39
Whatever sin, failure, and mistake you have done or will make will not separate you from the love of Christ. Fix your eyes upon Christ and believe (John 14:6).
The layers of blood seeped deep in the cross, layer by layer, covered all sin, each failure, all faults, and every error. All because of the cross stained red.

Our Foundation

An Upsurge of Generations (Part 1):
Our Foundation
            Foundation: the lowest load-bearing part of a building. Mentally all humans have a foundation: something that holds you together, a basis to life. Your foundation in life will determine where you go, the friends you hang out with, what you do when you’re alone, what you think, etc. It will affect everything, all of your surroundings. As followers of Jesus Christ we have a foundation: The Gospel.
J.D. Greear summed up The Gospel well in his book the Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary. God, Man, Christ, and Response:
1. God. God is the creator of all things (Gen. 1:1). He is perfectly holy, worthy of all worship, and will punish sin (1 John 1:5, Rev. 4:11, Rom. 2:5-8).
2. Man. All people, though created good, have become sinful by nature (Gen. 1:26-28, Ps. 51:5, Rom. 3:23). From birth, all people are alienated from God, hostile to God, and subject to the wrath of God (Eph. 2:1-3).
3. Christ. Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to bear God’s wrath in the place of all who would believe in Him, and rose from the grave in order to give His people eternal life (John 1:1, 1 Tim. 2:5, Heb. 7:26, Rom. 3:21-26, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 Cor. 15:20-22).
4. Response. God calls everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and trust in Christ in order to be saved (Mark 1:15, Acts 20:21, Rom. 10:9-10).
We are all broken, sinful, and need the gospel to have a relationship with God (Romans 3:23). Through the blood and death of Christ we are made new. If we believe in Christ (John 14:6), every bad thought, all selfishness, every sin ever committed was washed clean through Jesus’s death on the cross. Past, present, and future… blank check, done for.  
Throughout the entire Bible there is a theme: God saving us from sin. Through Christ’s death, God gives us a point to live, a hope, and life, through His sovereignty and justice He saves us from an eternity in hell. Forgiven and remade are what we are when we believe. Make your foundation last.

Introduction of: An Upsurge of Generations

Introduction of: An Upsurge of Generations
            God once again has inspired me to describe and write about His wonderful grace, forgiveness, hope, and excellence. This is my first blog series and I truly hope to inspire others in Christ and ultimately I want to worship and praise God for the grace He has lavished onto me!
            This series will have seven to eight parts that talk about “our foundation”, suffering, pain, “our undertaking”, and accomplishing the ultimate task… worship.
            Join me as God stirs and changes the universe through His love. We are gripped afresh and forgiven…

This blog series is dedicated to my wonderful family.
