Preaching on the theme, The Elects God Set Sons, taken from I Corinthians 12:18- 25, Dickson said God expects his children to live by example by not just preaching but living with His word , stressing that when people shine the light of God for others to see, others would be attracted to Christ.
She enjoined students to forgive those who hurt them as demonstrated by Jesus Christ even on the Cross, adding that humility, forgiveness, peace, love, gentleness and long suffering were attributes of God’s elect.
