In this special Youth Day Service, the Maxxed Out Youth Ministry showcased their talents and worshipped God through song, dance, and theatre. The ministry challenged us to get “beyond the lights” of the superficial to walk into the calling and anointing that God has on our lives. Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. related this dynamic message to the story of King David. Despite negative messages and actions from his father and siblings, David continued to stay properly postured towards God. No matter what, we must remember that there is no human who can stop the assignment that God has placed on our lives. Rather than embody the expectations of others, we must embrace our self-identity even in the midst of dysfunction. We can never allow our destinies to be determined by human affirmations.
