God Rescues His People

There are times when you need to be rescued. Daniel was right in the middle of one of those times. The king in the land had ordered all the people of the land to worship him as god or be put to death. Daniel already had a God, the one true God, and he refused to bow to any other. His faith was great, but he was still thrown into a pit with lions who would quickly devour him. The God Daniel served is a God who rescues. The next morning, when the king went to the lion's den to see if Daniel was dead, he was not. Not only did God rescue Daniel, but the pagan king gave God glory, pronouncing an edict that all in the land "must tremble in fear before the God of Daniel: For He is the living God, and He endures forever; His kingdom will never be destroyed, and His dominion has no end." (Daniel 6:26)

This Sunday in our 9:15 groups for children, studentsadults, and senior adults you'll see how God glorifies Himself through the rescue of those who trust Him, and how the rescue of Daniel points toward God's rescue of us all through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.

If you're a young adult, you'll discover a similar truth how the Bible helps us to discover and follow Jesus who is the ultimate Word from God, who brings salvation and rescue to all who believe.

See you Sunday in 9:15 groups at 9:15am as we live for Christ.
