Living in Exile
A Study in Daniel
The church has lost its influence over culture and society, and our temptation is to despair over what’s been lost or to fight to regain the power we once had. However, the reality is that this world has never been our home and this is not the first time God’s people have experienced such a dramatic change in circumstances. The book of Daniel describes how God’s people lived during their exile in Babylon and teaches us how to live in exile neither with despair nor combativeness, but instead with faithfulness to Christ and hopefulness in our sovereign God.
