The book of Daniel has inspired Christians throughout the centuries to faithful and obedient service in the face of danger and persecution. Living far from their own homes and land, in a culture that was dominated by a faith situation completely antagonistic to their own, Daniel and his companions remained conscious of their continuing commitment to the God of Israel. The prophecies revealed to Daniel assured them and Christians today, that, though human kingdoms will continue to rise and fall, Gods kingdom will ultimately prevail. For readers today, as for Gods people of old, the book of Daniel calls us to dedicated commitment to God and his kingdom. In everything, Christ must have the supremacy and we eagerly wait for the final revelation of his glory.
