Daniel never strayed from his faith and love for God during his captivity in Babylon. He remained faithful to God. He never became an activist. But what he did do was pray. Even when praying to God became illegal, he prayed to God. Even though Daniel was placed in high positions, positions coveted by select Babylonians, Daniel remained faithful to God. King Darius and King Nebuchadnezzar, both witnessed the power of God and acknowledged Daniel's God. With that said, we can be effective witnesses to the lost by showing Christ's love to them, even though they may think they are going to make us run, fold, or just cower beneath them.
Jesus reclined at sinners' tables and ate and drank with them. He talked with a Samaritan woman. These were people that the Jews were to stay away from, because the sinners would make them dirty. He never required them to repent their sin before He would eat with them or talk to them. Oh and Jesus prayed to God. He prayed often.
Daniel remained faithful to God, we need to remain faithful to God.
Jesus met us at our low with love and compassion. We need to do the same with the lost. Though we cannot save them, we can lead them, or at least show them Jesus through our actions. Because its Jesus that can save them too.
So, if they don't see Jesus in you, who are they seeing?
