Sunday's Sermon Text (Daniel 4:1-37)

This Sunday I will continue in the series from Daniel chapters 1-6. This week's text is Daniel 4:1-37. Let me encourage you to read and become familiar with this text. Following are some initial observations to consider:

* King Nebuchadnezzar knew that there was something different about Daniel. Three times we are told that "the spirit of the holy gods" is in Daniel.What do you think this means?

* There's always a purpose in God's judgements. What was God doing here in this story (v.17)?

* There is a great biblical description of repentance in verse 17. Do you see it?  What is involved in biblical repentance?

* God gives us all of our abilities and they are to be used for God's glory. How did Nebuchadnezzar view his abilities and kingdom?

* Nebuchadnezzar in a sense lost his humanity when he refused to acknowledge God's authority. How are we truly human by knowing and relating properly to our creator?

For His Glory!
