Daniel 3:19-30

As we finish up chapter three we revisit one of the most well known of all the stories in the Bible: the fiery furnace. Last week we watched the story unfold: potentially thousands of Nebuchadnezzar’s government employees have been summoned to express their loyalty to Nebuchadnezzar under penalty of death in a fiery furnace. Just bow down when the…

Daniel 3:1-18

Daniel 3 actually doesn’t involve Daniel at all! He is absent from the chapter. But his three friends are put in an awkward spot to resist public pressure—and even threats—to be true to their God. We often pray for safety, but there are times when our decision to be God serving people may actually put us in danger.…

Daniel 2:31-49

We left Daniel standing in the presence of the Nebuchadnezzar, having announced that he knows the dream and the interpretation. Can you feel the suspense? What was the dream? What does it mean? Daniel tells the king his dream and then tells him what it means. I don’t want to give away too much, but I can tell you the dream…

Daniel series

Daniel 2:1-30

The chapter is just too long and too important to speed through.  It is one of the most amazing prophetic passages in the whole Bible! The chapter starts with a very troubling dream. By the end of the chapter Daniel and the others have been promoted and the mighty king of the Babylonian empire is acknowledging Daniel’s…

Daniel 1:1-21

As we begin our study in the book of Daniel, I have had the opportunity to spend time pre-reading through the book and thinking about the man, Daniel; he’s an amazing guy!  Humble, gentle, courageous, stable. He is uprooted from family and neighborhood and culture and thrust into a new life of servitude in a…

Galatians 6:11-18

We are now bringing to conclusion our study in the Book of Galatians as we get a grip on Paul’s closing remarks.  We have followed his argument and appeal to the young Christians in the region of Galatia— stand firmly in the freedom from religious performance that Christ brought, and walk in the Spirit!  That’s a basic…

Galatians 6:1-10

Have you spent too much time watching the news? Are Facebook posts driving you mad?  Is politics polluting your joy?  What’s the answer?  Worship! The last chapter of Galatians is super practical and answers some important questions about Godly communities and healthy families!  Grace and law couldn’t produce more different community dynamics! Paul explains that healthy,…

Galatians 5:16-26

Although the Bible is not a psychology book, it has much to say about the soul and the inner life of a human being. And when the Bible speaks about those subjects, it is profound. Galatians 5:16-26 is one of those passages! The BIG question Paul has to answer is this: “Without law, how do we…

Galatians 5:7-15

We are systematically making our way through Galatians 5 and will look at nine verses tomorrow: verses 7-15. The argument for the need for the church to have rules to govern behavior is that if people are told they are free, they will just indulge sin!  “Pastor, people need rules and guilt and pressure or they…

Galatians 5:1-10

Galatians chapter five represents a transition from the first four chapters that were highly persuasive and theological regarding our relationship to God the Father. In chapter 5, Paul shows the Galatians what freedom really looks like and how truly free people really live by the Spirit and Love — not by law.  In the discussion…
