How can we cause Christ to shine on our church – life?
Read Daniel 9:1-19 again.
I. SPEND MORE TIME READING AND PRAYING!
You say, preacher, I knew you would say that. Wonderful, now then let’s do it.
Four ingredients to prayer given by Daniel:
- Adoration verse 4.
- Thanksgiving verse 4.
- Confession verses 5-15.
- Petition verses 16-19.
II. AS STUDYING AND PRAYING – PAY MORE ATTENTION TO WHAT HE IS SAYING.
Dr. Scofield said, “Prophetic study is intended to lead to a deeper spiritual life.”
What you do with the Bible determines what God does with you. And you make much of the Bible and God will make much of you.
III. TALK TO HIM A LITTLE MORE OFTEN TO HELP IN UNDERSTAND HIS WORD.
IV. CONTINUALLY LIVE IN HIS WILL AND SEEK TO PLEASE HIM DAY BY DAY.
V. IF NOT SAVED, RECEIVE HIM AS SAVIOUR
Daniel was truly concerned for Israel in verses 18-19.
