From the Pastor
Destined to Be Great
“He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:5-6.
What is your destiny? Some would say that’s something we never figure out. What or who are you destined to be? Paul tells us that God destined us for adoption as his children. We are destined to be God’s children through Jesus Christ.
And what does that mean? That means that we are destined to be great.
That sounds so simple, doesn’t it? And we all know that we aren’t great at everything. We want to be, for sure. I love to bake, and I think I’m pretty good at it, maybe even great. But I’m not so great of a cook. I used to love playing softball, but I was never great at it. Some are better at music and arts and others at sports. But in Christ, we are all destined to be great people.
I tell students that I work with to “be great,” and I mean it. I want youth that I know and love to be great at their schoolwork, their extra curricular activities, as well as be great people. That’s also what God wants from us. In adopting us through Jesus Christ, God is destining us for greatness.
Matthew Arnold defines greatness clearly: “Greatness is a spiritual condition worthy to excite love, interest, and admiration; and the outward proof of possessing greatness is, that we excite love, interest, and admiration.”
As we welcome in a New Year, think about ways in which you can be great people. Can you volunteer at Dot’s Kitchen? Can you help those in our community in need? Maybe you see an area where you can be great, and a new project begins. Be great. You have been destined for greatness by God, and God will make you great. All you have to do is allow God to work in your life, and to give God every part of you. How can you excite love, interest, and admiration? That’s what true greatness is, and that is who God has destined us to be. Go into 2015 knowing your destiny—to be great.
