You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.  John 15:16-17

We are chose & appointed to:

1. Go

2. Bear fruit 

3. Fruit that remains

 

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments Deuteronomy 7:9

 

Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren, Deuteronomy 4:9

Teach: to make oneself known, reveal oneself

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet.... And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6 (NKJV)

 

And if you are willing to receive it, he (John) is Elijah who is to come. Matthew 11:14

 

WHY??

Because a Young Generation finds their identity in 2 key places:

1. God

2. A Mentor who believes in them!

 

Mentoring: A Wholistic Process that is Heart Led!

Must have 4 key components (I Cor 14)

1. Seeing & speaking to their Potential not just their Present 

    RESULTS: CREATING VISION IN THEM

2. Persuading & stirring their heart toward that Potential 

    RESULTS: CREATING ACTION IN THEM

3. Being near to Address & Encourage 

    RESULTS: CREATING AWARENESS IN THEM

4. Shaping, Directing & Correcting 

    RESULTS: UNLEASHING THEIR POTENTIAL
