What is your Ultimate Trust for Now and the Future?
Today, as we conclude our overview of Daniel, we must decide how we will respond to the message of the book. Will we build our lives on the assurance that God is in control and that our times are in his hands? Will we trust that, and will our actions reflect that trust? We live in distressing times, and God’s truth must ground us and give us hope as we persevere. Without such a foundation, we will surely sink. Therefore, Daniel asks us this last question: What is your ultimate trust for now and the future?
Much of the material in this sermon is based on Paul House, Old Testament Theology (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1998), 327–45, and Michael Barrett, God’s Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel (Greenville, SC: Ambassador-Emerald, 2003).
