3 Typical Responses: 1. Agitate 2. Assimilate 3. Isolate Romans 12:2 (NLT)

Dont copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

Romans 12:2 (MSG) Dont become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. Youll be

changed from the inside out. REMEMBER: In order to have _______ IMPACT ,

you must have ________ CONTACT ! Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) You are the light of the world. A

town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same

way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

BUT Dont let contact become a CONTRACT __________! 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NIV)

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with

darkness? Daniel 1:1-2 (NIV) In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of

Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in

Babylonia and put in the treasure house of his god. Daniel 1:3-4 (NIV) Then the king ordered Ashpenaz, chief of his

court officials, to bring into the kings service some of the Israelites from the royal family and the nobility--young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick

to understand, and qualified to serve in the kings palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians. The king assigned them a daily amount of food and wine from the kings table.

Daniel 1:5-7 They were to be trained for three years, and after that they were to enter the kings service. Among those who were chosen were some from Judah: Daniel,

Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel, the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego.

Daniel 1:8-10 But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile

himself this way. Now God had caused the official to show favor and compassion to Daniel, but the official told Daniel, I am afraid of my lord the king, who has assigned your food and drink. Why should he see you looking

worse than the other young men your age? The king would then have my head because of you. Daniel 1:11-14

Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then

compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see. So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.

Daniel 1:15-17 At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. So the guard took away their choice food and the

wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead. To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all

kinds. Daniel 1:18-19 At the end of the time set by the king to bring them into his service, the chief

official presented them to Nebuchadnezzar. The king talked with them, and he found none equal to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; so they entered the kings service.

Daniel 1:20-21 In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten

times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom. And Daniel remained there until the first year of King Cyrus.

Life Hack #4 Resolve To Obey & Let Your Life Speak Daniel 1:8 But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with

the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way. Daniel 1:15 At the end of the ten days they looked

healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. 1 Peter 2:12 (NCV) People who do not believe are living all

around you and might say that you are doing wrong. Live such good lives that they will see the good things you do and will give glory to God on the day when Christ comes again.

1 Peter 2:12 (MSG) Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then theyll be won over to

Gods side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.
