CHARACTERISTICS OF AN UNCOMPROMISING LIFE

1A    AN UNEMBARRASSED  AUDACITY   Vs. 8

Daniel could have hem howl around the issue but he did not.  He told Ashpenaz the real reason why he could not eat of the kings meat! It would defile him.
We need the kind of people who are embarrassed of their commitment to the Word of God and the Lord of Bible. They are not  embarrassed to the Lordship of Christ.. Like Moses. Like David: Psalms 40:8-10.    Psalms 71:15, Romans 9:33; Mark 8:38, I Peter 4:16; 11 Timothy 1:7-8; Psalms 119:46.
Jeremiah 9:3; Ezekiel 3:9, ! Chronicle 12:8  Phiulippians 1:27
Isaiah: Isaiah 50:1. And Paul in 11 Timothy 1:7-8.
Nobody ought to intimate us out of our message.  A group of people who are not ashambed of Christ.

2A    AN  UNORDINARY  QUALITY OF EXCELLENCE  vs. 12

1C       The boys had a higher level of commitment. It was a matter of choice. But when it is establish you want to live on a higher view of life, and you set an unordinary quality of behavior. Have you notice those who have this quality  just don’t do it like everyone else does it.
2C       Aaron: Leviticus 10:8-10, Numbers 6:1-4;   Hannah in I Samuel 1:13-15 and Jeremiah in 35:5-8.

3A    UNEARTHLY  (NOT OF THIS WORLD) PROTECTION VS 9

       1B       “Now God.” After Daniel purposed in his heart in vs. 9 God moved in vs. 9.
            2B       Even if people do not like your conviction they admired him for it. When you meet someone with conviction you respect that someone        
3B       The reason things went well with Daniel, was not him, but God. God protects those who have made an uncanny commitment to serve God at all cost.
4B       I Kings 8:50, Psalms 106:46. Proverbs 16:7
