The stories of Daniel and friends are so real and exciting to read /hear! These narrative stories are some of my favorite stories in the entire Bible.
Faithfulness of God requires the faithfulness of his people.
Whether God can and will protect his people from the all too visible power of kings who do not recognize the God of Israel depends on the faithfulness and obedience of his people.
God’s faithfulness is demonstrated in his deliverance of Daniel and his friends.
Daniel and his friends were faithful to God and God delivered them on several occasions (I will highlight a few):
1. Diet test.
2. The fire
3. Den of lions
Theological points in relation to ‘faithfulness’:
At Creation we were created In His image. We were to be like God.
Be as I am (holy, faithful, righteous, just, loving)…there is the side of human responsibility.
we have no excuses: With the New Covenant, the law is on our hearts.
