The Children of God

A Message for the Youth

Philippians 2:5-8 (KJV)

 

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

This is the word of the Lord for the youth in this hour. Let this mind be in you.

The word mind in this verse is translated from the greek word phroneo: to exercise the mind, intensively to interest oneself in (with concern and obedience), set the affection on, be like- be of one + be of the same.

God is calling a generation of believers to rise up out from among the youth of this world. This is a generation who will not only acknowledge the God of the bible as the One true God, as well as Jesus Christ to be the savior of all mankind, but this following of young people will not consider it robbery to be equal with God. The word robbery here is translated from the greek word harpagmos meaning plunder. We do not plunder or strip God of any glory when we consider ourselves equal with Him. Why? Because we are His children.

Romans 8:29 “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”

Notice how the bible teaches that we are brothers and sisters with Christ. Not the servants or the slaves; we are a part of the family. The second chapter of Philippians is teaching how Jesus’ mindset worked here on earth and how He handled such power and status. Read vs 7&8 again

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

 It is a bold mindset. It calls for a balance of humility and selflessness and service. Obedience unto the death, even the death of the cross. Are you willing to embrace the calling of a true child of God? It takes a mindset not taught in schools or even most churches of today. It takes maintaining this oneness in your Spirit with God as you face your cross, whatever that maybe, to the end; faithfully standing. A servant in human form, a child of God in mind and spirit. A co-heir with Christ Jesus:

Romans 8:17

Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

The Word of God attached our inheritance and glory to our sufferings. Children of this world, you may have suffered much or may come to suffer much, but it is not without great purpose and power that you do so. You are to inherit! Even in the current moment, this mindset and knowledge are yours for the taking. Embrace confidence, God has a mighty work for His children in this hour! #pleasingabba

Prayer Partners

This Ministry is actively seeking prayer partners who are willing to take on a consistent commitment. I am looking for faith filled individuals that have the gift of intercession. Prayer warriors stand in the gap, reaching out to God in petition. An intercessor is sensitive to the spiritual realm during prayer and responds accordingly. Prayer partners would take upon their own hearts the concerns and protection of this Ministry. Pleasing Abba has a battle to fight. A battle against ignorance and stereotypes, poverty and shame. I am personally dedicated to seeing change in the statistics of teen mothers during my lifetime, especially in regards to secondary education and incarceration of their youth. Please join me in taking up this cause, which can no longer be cast upon our young women and government alone. 1 of 10 babies born in the United States are born to a teen mother at a rate of 1,200 births a day. 1 in 3 girls in America will become pregnant by age 19. We need to rethink our agenda as a society and see that current education and prevention tactics are not enough. I plan to use my own story and how I achieved success to encourage teen mothers to graduate from college and produce income using their gifts and talents. I want to develop a YouTube channel teen mothers can access for free to get tips, as well as develop webinars. Teen moms need support to reach for their personal potential when facing stereotypes and single motherhood. This is a mighty work, but one I refuse to shy away from. It is time to rise up and establish a covenant of love with our young people. No more abandonment and no more shame. #pleasingabba #teenmom
