Passage: Daniel 1
Duration: 10 mins 41 secs
It isn’t always easy to make the right choice: what you really want to do may not be the most beneficial route for you to pursue. On the other hand, some choices are much easier or rather, at first glance, they appear to offer the best results - especially if some of the options are far more attractive than the alternatives! Daniel and his friends had been put on the leadership fast track for the Babylonian Civil Service. They had the brains and the ability to cope with the intensive 3 year MBA style course, a program of study guaranteed to give them the essential skills for their powerful and important roles. The problem was that the training course was an “all inclusive” affair. Daniel and his friends were expected to embrace the lifestyle of a Babylonian Grandee and that included the food. No problem you might think – until you realise that it was the kind of food that Jews considered that God had decreed as unclean. Faced by what seems to be an impossible dilemma – what choice do you make and how do you make it?

In the 40 days that followed the resurrection, Jesus laid the foundations of the church by instructing His disciples, giving particular emphasis to the Kingdom of God (Acts 1: 3). At the end of this period Jesus was taken up to heaven, leaving His disciples alone once again, with the promise that He would return in the same way as He had left the earth. The disciples now waited for God’s gift of power. For the disciples, perhaps like us as we are keen to see God at work, the wait must have felt as if would never end. But end it did with a unique outpouring of God’s power which opened the door to the formation of the community that we today call the church. We’re beginning a new series of Sunday messages and Home Group Studies. Sometimes referred to as the “Gospel of the Holy Spirit,” Acts is a powerful and power filled account of the growth, challenges and break out of the church. Following Christ would no longer be seen as some obscure Jewish Sect – it was a community which would change the world.
