Standing Strong | Part 3

A Change Of Name
There is much social engineering going on, but it is not dissimilar to all that Daniel and his three friends experienced. It won’t matter what people actually call you, accuse you, or label you, what does matter is who we are in Christ!

Standing Strong
The book of Daniel is an active encouragement to give your life to Jesus, and to be courageous representing him in your generation. We have a clarion call not to lose our nerve, or let our faith be diluted amidst huge cultural pressures. We want to equip you to go against the flow. Daniel, through active faith, silent and prayerful wisdom, shows us how to stand strong.

To stand strong in the world today means to be on the solid foundation of the name of Jesus. To live for him in a culture, that feels like you are swimming against the tide, you’ll need the right values, the right food, and to know who you are. You’ll need wisdom, to be bold, to maintain integrity and hold to a strong witness. You’ll need Prayer, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit. Let’s be a Daniel, rise our heads above the parapet and resolve not to get swept away. Part One is Six Messages from Daniel chapter one, all looking at the changing world of Daniel, one that displaced God, built a contrary way of living but demonstrates the kind of person God calls each one of us to be.
