2022 THEME: For Such a Time. . .
Series: Against the Grain
TITLE: Who’s Afraid of Big Cats?
Scripture: Daniel 6
Daniel is condemned to death in a most gruesome manner because he chooses (loyalty to God) over (obedience to the state).
I. BE FAITHFUL- (STAND YOUR GROUND)
120 satraps (overseers) -> 3 governors -> Darius
Daniel teaches us a very vital lesson here: (Be true to God) even when it may cost you.
There was no attempt by Daniel (to hide his faith).
Dynamic at work: (Evil men) will not stop at trying to entrap a (godly man).
II. BE FAITHFUL- (TRUST YOUR GOD)
Why can we trust God?
1. Because we can (rest in God’s plan). (16-18)
2. Because we can be (certain of God’s power) (19-24)
Daniel’s words: “found innocent.” What do they mean? When the heat was applied (I chose God).
