The Gospel of John
In today's blog Andi Norton looks at the story of Daniel and his friends in Exile and the battle to stand against the power forces of the day, to not fear and trust the Lord their God with them in the fire. He draws the focus on how fire refines us and burns up all the areas of our lives that are not Godly and enlarge our vision of God as good, faithful and Sovereign. Through the fire - Fear Not, be refined, Rejoice and Celebrate that God is with you and working in and through you.
Joe reflects on Isaiah 26:3-4 and helps us to see that we have access to Jesus as we fix our focus on Him rather than our current circumstances. He highlights that in this current climate the church has left the building but is impacting the world in incredible ways. As we are informed by what's going on around us but not conformed to it (fear) we become those who can be beacons of peace and hope.
