Sermons about Daniel
As we examine consistency in the Bible, I would like to highlight the life of Daniel, who was God’s spokesperson to the Jews exiled in Babylon. If there was someone in the Bible who exemplified tremendous consistency apart from Jesus, his life stands out. Living far from his homeland and away from his religious roots, he could have made excuses to not walk with God consistently. Yet, he made some critical decisions that resulted in a consistent life. Let’s take some time to examine what those decisions are and learn how we can be more consistent today while living in a very inconsistent world:
Dr. Daniel Taylor, author & guest lecturer for the 2013 Spring Lectureship, speaks about the power of kindness and blessing.
Consistently doing the right thing creates personal momentum and honors God.
This message looks at the life of Daniel as he is taken prisoner from Jerusalem and forced into the circles of power and paganism in Babylon. His refusal to compromise and accommodate the pagan influences arrayed against him in education, religion and the arts is a powerful example of what to do when the secular world presses in. This is especially important for the generation of young adults coming up in the church today in America.
Dennis Rose preaches on Daniel 7 v 9-18 and Matthew 24 v 47-56 at Bervie Church on Palm Sunday, 24th March 2013.
What exactly are personal convictions? Is setting aside a personal conviction for another person's sensibilities a right thing to do? What exactly is the "chain of command" when it comes to personal convictions? If you choose to follow your conviction, what then~are you choosing to resist God or resist man? Pastor Chuck gives some tools to understand the chain of authority and responsibility in a believer's life, and examples from both the Old and New Testament of saints who dealt exactly with these questions.
Samson did not purpose his heart to live according to the calling that God had placed on his life. There was no conviction or follow through. By highlighting another bible ‘hero’ we can see how living “on purpose” bears much fruit.
