In the first part of his message, Pastor Brian Grant drew on the tragic legacy of slavery, and in particular, the devastation slavery brought upon the Black family that left many in an enduring state of hopelessness. Using as an example his own family background, Pastor Grant showed how, regardless of bad family background, there is hope in Jesus. Like David, despised people can become God’s champions.
We have been taking lessons from the life of David in this series, and David’s early prospects for greatness seemed inauspicious to say the least. Scripture records how even his own family didn’t take him seriously. Pastor Brian Grant takes us past all that to show how David—despite the opinions of others—proved to be one of God’s greatest champions.
In the first part of Pastor Brian Grant’s message, we learned that, unlike in the Old Testament times, at salvation, ever Believer in Jesus Christ is anointed by the Holy Spirit and equipped with all that is needed to live a life of godliness and service. Let’s pick up the message again as Pastor Grant brings it to its conclusion.

Nevertheless, God had big plans for this young man: He had singled him out for greatness. God is still in the business of turning nobody’s into somebody’s.
