SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (DANIEL - 4)
DANIEL was a man who was FORCED to live in a very fast-changing and godless society!
He was FORCED to Face some Realistic Fears about the Future… he was also CONCERNED about his Safety on numerous occasions… and He was often DISCOURAGED about a World that seemed to be Falling Apart all around him! (And don’t ALL of those Realities sound eerily familiar to the World We Live In Today!?) There just seems to be a lot of Confusion / Heartbreak / Fear / Uncertainty… that is surrounding US (Christians) each/every day in the World we live in for sure! Which can often leave us WONDERING at times… IF GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL!? (However…) Through a tremendous amount of HOPE / HUMILITY / WISDOM… (DANIEL…) Who was a man that lived thousands of years ago in a world very similar to ours… demonstrated to US TODAY some extremely valuable lessons in HOW we can not only SURVIVE… but also learn how toTHRIVE in our surroundings! So we’ve started here at COC – talking about some of DANIEL’S Story and some of the Incredible Attributes he demonstrated – with the attempt of learning HOW to Apply them to our lives… especially when it seems sometimes like we’re LIVING AMONG LIONS! Be sure to do everything possible to NOT MISS the Fourth Week of this Powerful New Series… and bring a friend too! See you soon!
Sunday Snapshot… (4) HUMILITY… How Credibility Is Earned!
BIBLICAL HUMILITY = SERVING OTHERS (Period.)
Biblical Humility also means… SERVING THOSE WHO DON’T NECESSARILY DESERVE TO BE SERVED! (Ouch!)
Always Remember THIS when it comes to SERVING... WITHOUT CONTACT - THERE CAN BE NO IMPACT! (Don't Isolate Anyone!)
If Your PASSION for GOD begins to override Your PASSION for LOST PEOPLE... something has gone Terribly Wrong! (Jesus came to Seek and Save WHO...? The LOST!)
Daniel didn't SERVE/RESPECT Nebuchadnezzar because he DESERVED it… he SERVED/RESPECTED him because GOD COMMANDED IT!
Remind Yourself Often - WHO IS THE REAL ENEMY... NON-CHRISTIANS are NOT the ENEMY… they are VICTIMS of the ENEMY! (Ephesians 6:12)
