GCC's Children's Ministry exists to make faithful followers of Christ by connecting, challenging, and impacting parents and their children.
This week, we're learning:
Daniel 6: Daniel in the Lion's Den
As a way to rid themselves of Daniel, the king’s satraps created a plan to make King Darius the focal recipient of prayer for thirty days. Knowing Daniel would defy the edict, these governors hurriedly persuaded the king to sign their injunction and the first prayer Daniel offered would be his ticket to the lion’s den. Even still, Daniel remained obedient to God, and therefore, was placed in the lions’ den. However, the Lord protected him and spared his life, and Daniel enjoyed a peaceful evening despite his feline company. Through Daniel’s faithfulness, God showed His strength, eternality, and sovereignty. So remarkable was Daniel’s deliverance from the lion’s den that Darius himself, much like Nebuchadnezzar before him, confessed the superiority of Daniel’s God.
