The central thrust of this series is summed up well by Iain Duguid in his commentary on Daniel. He writes the following…
“As citizens of heaven, Christians live as aliens and strangers in a land that is not their own, and there are times when the world’s enmity to the people of God becomes evident. The hostility of the world is often shown in the efforts it makes to squeeze us into its mold. It wants to make us conform to its values and standards and not to stick out from the crowd…We have to choose daily whether to be part of this world in which we live, or to take the difficult path of standing against it."
This series helps us to name the challenges that we face living in a culture and in a world that would seek to influence us away from God. We actually see this in the story of Nebuchadnezzar. He is influenced by Daniel and his friends to ultimately becoming a worshipper of God. This series will help us see how we can actually bring blessing and influence into that world in a way that points other people to Christ.
