Dear CCC Youths, You don’t have to substitute your humility and respect for your rank, the purpose of anointment and rank is far beyond feeling superior to some set of members who haven’t gotten the rank you hold and seeing them as inferior to you whether they are older than you in age or in membership of the church itself.
Ranks or anointment is not for claiming equality with elders who are far older than you in age. The fact that you both hold the same rank doesn’t make you equal to them at all. 1 peter 2 vs 7 “Show proper respect to everyone. Love the community of believers. Have respect for God. Honor the King.” But as soon as you get your 1st, 2nd, 3rd anointment you immediately want to be part of the decision making body of the church. Any decision taking without your acknowledgment calls for immediate rebellion and murmuring. Your rank can no longer allow bend-a-bit to greet elders in the church yet you expect to be respected by the teenagers and the children. You begins enmity with the Shepherd for not always consenting and approving your deeds and acts.
Many of you don’t even know why anointment and ranks exist in the first place. The reason for your rank and anointment is to work for God both in the Church and outside the church, to evangelize the Gospel of God, to spread the Good news about Christ, to show exemplary virtues to upcoming youths, and Christians of other denominations.
Matthew 20 vs 28 “Be like the son of God. He did not come to be served. Instead, He came to serve others. He came to give his life as the price for setting others free. ”
May God Of Oshoffa Bless us all as we retrace our steps
