Faith in a Foreign Land
[ 7 Episodes ] 22 January 2023 - 05 March 2023
Daniel is a young man who had his whole world turned upside down. Like a tornado that tears though your house and destroys everything you own, Daniel experienced the invading armies of Babylon and was uprooted from his home and taken to live and serve, pretty much as a slave, under the tyrant Nebuchadnezzar. It was common practice in the culture to castrate slaves, and whilst the book of Daniel doesn’t confirm this, there is good reason to think he was probably made a eunuch. Daniel finds himself far from home in a land that’s far from God and living a life he never asked for. He was an outsider, with a terrible Boss, no sex life and no family prospects. Many Christians today speak as if God exists to help them live their dream life. Daniel was about as far from living the dream as you can get! And yet this young man is faithful to God amongst all the pressure of the culture, the injustice of his situation and the idolaters around him. He did not give up, he did not get bitter and resentful, he held fast to his faith in God. Today we live in a culture that is far from God. As believers we might feel a bit like Daniel; foreigners and exiles in our land. In fact, if we don’t then there is probably something very wrong. In this series we aim to look and learn from Daniel and how he managed to stay faithful to God in a foreign land. We are going to look at the first 6 chapters of Daniel as these focus on his life and what happened, then we will dip into chapter 7 to finish. Chapters 7-12 are about his dreams and vision so will not get into that here.
