Draw Near to God

God is always present, but He wants to manifest His presence to us. There are ways that we can encourage His presence, and ways that we can stifle His presence. We are supposed to be a people who draw near to God so He can draw near to us.

Present Yourself

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego presented themselves to God as living sacrifices. We must also. What does this mean, and is it worth it? Romans 12:1,2 tells us what this means, and their example tells us it is worth it!

Music and Worship

When Nebuchadnezzar built his golden statue he demanded that when the music played everyone was to bow and worship. Music is a vital human activity and is intimately linked with our worship. We must be a people who praise our Lord in song.

Psalm 137

The imprecatory Psalms sound harsh to our ears, but when you understand their setting and value they sound very different. This Psalm contains very important information about our memories and about singing God's songs as we live our daily lives in "Babylon."

Nebuchadnezzar's Madness

Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon and his empire was great. God, however, is greater! In his pride Nebuchadnezzar lost his mind, and his insanity teaches us some valuable lessons.

Esther in Shushan

Esther did not have a perfect environment or an ideal family yet she was faithful to God. Her life shows us that women today can overcome enemies, rise above the pressures of their society, and exert enormous influence. To do so, however, they will have to trust their God wholly.

Matters of Conscience II

Romans 14 and I Corinthians 8 are worthy of deep study. Who is the stronger brother- the one who limits what he does, or the one who takes a more permissive approach? The answer does not lie in what we allow or disallow, but in how our lives relate to our Christian faith and to our Christian brothers.

Matters of Conscience I

We are all familiar with the things that Daniel and his three friends refused in Babylon, but we do not often think about the things they went along with. How do we understand the issues involved in refusing and going along with Babylon? Our brothers in Rome and in Corinth can help us with this.

Going Along With Babylon

We know about Daniel, his three friends, and their strong convictions. We don't always notice, however, how much they went along with Babylonian life. If we are to influence our culture and witness for Christ we cannot isolate ourselves from the world in which we live.

Tears and Hope

When Babylon takes over the proper response is neither anger nor fear, it is grief. Yet this grief is not to take over the believer's life. Even in the book of Lamentations, the Bible's book of grief, there is strong hope and comfort.
