Exiles on Earth- Daniel's Adaption without Assimilation
Passage: Hebrews 11:6–11:8
We will be learning from the lives of those who were faith-filled “strangers and exiles on the Earth” (Heb 11:13). As we look at the ways Abraham, Moses, Daniel, and the early Church faithfully followed God in their earthly exile, we hope to learn heart postures that will empower us to live similarly faithful lives as earthly exiles, with the knowledge that our one true home is Heaven to come. This week we look at the life of Daniel and how he adapted to his circumstances and culture he lived in without total assimilation.
- Start with- What did the Holy Spirit reveal to you through this teaching and the time you spent studying the life of Daniel?
- What are ways you think living distinctly amongst your friends, family, co-workers, etc. could make the biggest impression of God’s goodness & worthiness?
- Where in your life do you have opportunities to speak to human arrogance & power? What have past experiences of doing so been like for you?
- In what areas of your life is it most challenging to worship God, whether from external pressures or temptations? Why is it challenging?
