1: Don’t Just Stand Up, Stand Out
DANIEL – TAKE A STAND OCT 15-NOV 19
About The Series: Daniel recorded his experiences and prophecies for the Jewish exiles during his time in the Babylonian capital, where his service to the king gave him privileged access to the highest levels of society. His faithful service to the Lord in a land and culture makes him unique among almost all the people of the Old Testament Era.
Have you ever endured the weight or consequences of sin and felt as though God had left you behind, that He had stranded you in a world far from the comforts associated with home? Our study of the first six chapters of the book of Daniel is designed to help paint for us a portrait of how to serve God faithfully in the middle of such a world and how to persevere in hope even with no immediate solutions to the problems we face.
Week One: We like to talk about purity and holiness, but we don’t often talk about the risks or rewards of living a holy life. Daniel faced the pressures of a secular culture daily—baiting him to defile himself, but he chose holiness. In part one, we’ll show what the Bible clearly reveals concerning the risks, reasons, and rewards of holiness.
