Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy
"Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy by Beth Moore shows how individuals can live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. Join Beth in a faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to shine for Christ in our modern culture. Just as the prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures—to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats—today's believers face many of the same trials. This 12-session study falls in two parts and can be used as one or two separate studies. The first portion, from Daniel chapters 1-6, deals with Daniel's life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. Daniel models how to develop enduring integrity in an enticing world. The second portion, chapters 7-12, explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ."
Our woman's Bible study at church started this bible study by Beth Moore last week. The theme of the first portion has been how to live out a life of integrity in the midst of a culture without any. Beth has done a great job of comparing Babylon during the time of Daniel to the current climate in our western culture.
Even though I have only watched one session - I am hooked. I want to learn how to live in today's Babylon without being seduced by it. It won't be easy - and I have already been challenged by it - but I am going to stick with it and see what God has in store for me!
