Living in light of the Sovereign Care of God

Speaker: Rev Benjamin Tsao
Text: Daniel 1

  1. In spite of crises, God is in control (vv 1-3)

 Sometimes crises are a result of God’s loving chastisement (Hebrews 12:6-7)

  1. Let us live uncompromisingly for God as He watches over us (vv 4-21)
  • We must be wary of the negative influence of the world (vv 4b-7)
  • We must be committed to not compromise God’s commands (vs 8)
  • God’s favour is on those who make a commitment to Him (vv 9-21)
