As an older man, he was surrendered, Dan. 6. God is interested in our running faithfully all the way, Heb. 12:1-3. Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. I. THE TEST OF DANIEL'S FAITH 4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. 2 Tim. 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. Through Persecution :- A.The Saint Is Cultivated - V. 3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Daniel was already a great man, God wanted to develop him even further. Rom. 8:28; And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

B. The Saviour Is Celebrated - V. 25-28 1 Cor. 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Acts 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. C. The Sinner Is Convicted - V. 4- 5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God. These men were disturbed by Daniel’s faith. They knew that he possessed something that they did not have. Believers are living epistles - Matt. 5:16; Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. 2 Cor. 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: John Wesley & Peter Bohler, Chinese Christian Prison Witness, Philippian Jailor Acts 16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? II. THE TESTIMONY OF DANIEL'S FAITH A. His Testimony To His Foes - V. 10-11 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime. 11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
