Food For Thought | Cover to Cover | Sermon By Pastor Ed Young

What do you do when you are in a Lion’s Den? Because lions are everywhere — they’re prowling around, ready to pounce on our God-given purpose so that we cave in to compromise. So how do we gain the courage to stand firm in our faith?

In this sermon, Pastor Ed Young teaches from the book of Daniel. A man of great resolve, we can learn a lot from Daniel’s refusal to compromise his beliefs and courage to stand firm. He was no superhero; he had no special powers — he was human just like us. His confidence in the face of potential execution came from keeping God first. We, too, can have the same courage if we fix our focus on Christ. As we stand for what we believe within our cultural climate, we’ll exit the lion’s den unscathed and be blessed in unbelievable ways.
