Then he said, “Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it.” (Genesis 18:32 ESV)
What city do you live in? No matter how big or small of a city you live in, what makes city sinful is not its economic, educational, or even ethnic make up or conditions. What makes cities sinful is the lack of eternal values embraced and embodied by their citizens.
Who are Ten in your city?
In the Bible, the number 10 is used 242 times. The designation “10th” is used 79 times. Ten is also viewed as a complete and perfect number, as is 3, 7 and 12. It is made up of 4, the number of the physical creation, and 6, the number of man. As such, it signifies testimony, law, responsibility and the completeness of order (courtesy of Biblestudy.org)
In Christ, you become Ten City beginning with your heart, then moving onto your home and in places where you encounter temptations, lawlessness, irresponsibility, and chaos.
