This is our theme for 2018. Our theme verse is as follows: “But you are ‘a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own’” (1 Peter 2:9a). Wow! Chosen. Royal. Holy. God’s own. What could be greater than that?!
But the enemy robs God’s people of what is destined for them. He has deceived them, and allowed them to accept much much less than what they truly are. As such, they are prevented from being God’s effective instruments in the world.
The first step in claiming our destiny is to understand what being destined for greatness means and what that entails. This will be our task for the whole year of 2018 as we dissect and enter deeply into our theme. – Frank Padilla
