The Consequences of an Uncompromising Life – Daniel 1:8-21
I. THEY HAVE AN UNASHAMED BOLDNESS
1 Peter 4:15-16 (NASB) 15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name.
II. THEY HAVE AN UNCOMMON STANDARD
“The people God uses the most are the odd-bods. So, you shouldn’t be surprised if you run into some odd-bods. In fact, everybody I’ve ever known specially used of God was an odd bod.” – Willy Still.
III. THEY HAD DIVINE PROTECTION
IV. THEY HAD A STRONG DETERMINATION
V. THEY HAD A HONORED DECISION
1 Samuel 2:30 for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed.
Isaiah 45:1 Thus says the LORD to Cyrus His anointed, Whom I have taken by the right hand, To subdue nations before him And to loose the loins of kings; To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
“Dare to be a Daniel
Dare to stand alone
Dare to have a purpose firm
Dare to make it known”
