0307-How to Be an Influencer 如何成为有影响力的人

Daniel 6:25-27 Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end. He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.Daniel made a difference in King Darius’ life. A king who not only did not follow God, but also made a decree that whoever made a petition to any god or man for 30 days, other than himself, would be cast into the den of lions. So how was he so impressed and influenced by Daniel to completely change his mind? What are some of Daniel’s qualities?

Daniel consecrated his life to God. He always sought the face of God and lived in the center of God’s will. Even after King Darius signed the decree banning prayers and petitions, Daniel continued his worship of God.

Daniel lived a sanctified life. He chose not to defile himself. While King Nebuchadnezzar offered portions of his delicacies and his wines, Daniel was not tempted and chose to abstain from having them.

Daniel was a good citizen. He was a vessel of honor for God. Even while serving under many foreign kings, he served them loyally and distinguished himself above the others.

Daniel possessed a very good character. He was faithful to God, obedient towards the authorities and had a spirit of excellence in everything he did. Even when Daniel was in the lions’ den, he gave honor to King Darius.

Daniel 6:20-21 And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever!”

Daniel utilized the gift that God gave him. He used his gift of interpretation, and honestly interpreted dreams for King Nebuchadnezzar and handwritings on the walls for King Belshazzar.

Daniel is an exemplary model for Christians. Through Daniel’s character and actions, King Darius witnessed how God worked in the life of Daniel and recognized that God was the living God. How can you inspire others? Would you be an influencer and save someone’s life?

如何成为有影响力的人

但以理书6:25-27那时大利乌王传旨、晓谕住在全地、各方各国各族的人、说、愿你们大享平安。 现在我降旨晓谕我所统辖的全国人民、要在但以理的 神面前、战兢恐惧、因为他是永远长存的活神、他的国永不败坏、他的权柄永存无极。他护庇人、搭救人、在天上地下施行神迹奇事、救了但以理脱离狮子的口。

但以理改变了大流士国王的生命。这国王不仅不曾跟随上帝,还颁布过一项法令,规定三十日内不拘任何人,若在王以外向神或向人求什么,将被抛入狮子坑。那么,他是如何被但以理打动并最终完全改变主意呢?但以理有什么样的特质?

但以理将生命奉献给上帝。他总是寻求上帝的面,并活在神旨意的中心。即使大流士国王签署了禁止祈祷和请愿的法令,但以理仍然继续敬拜上帝。

但以理过着成圣的生活。他选择不玷污自己。当尼布甲尼撒国王赏赐了他一份美味佳肴和葡萄酒时,但以理毫不动心,选择戒绝这些饮食。

但以理是一个好公民。他是上帝荣耀的载体。即使在伺候多位外国国王的时候,他也忠诚地侍奉他们,并且表现出众。

但以理具有很好的性格。他忠于上帝,服从权柄,无论做任何事都精益求精。即使但以理被抛在狮子坑里,他仍然尊荣大流士王。

但以理书6:20-21 临近坑边、哀声呼叫但以理、对但以理说、永生 神的仆人但以理阿、你所常事奉的 神能救你脱离狮子么。但以理对王说、愿王万岁!

但以理使用了上帝赐给他的恩赐。他用诠释恩赐,诚实地为尼布甲尼撒王解梦,并向伯沙撒王讲解粉墙上的文字。

但以理是基督徒的楷模。通过但以理的品格和行动,大流士国王见证了上帝如何在但以理生命中做工,并认识到上帝是永生的上帝。你如何激励他人?你会成为有影响力并挽救他人生命的人吗?
