At an early age, Daniel was taken from the city of Jerusalem to live the remainder of his days in Babylon. But while living in Babylon, Daniel continued to live for Jerusalem. In Babylon, he lived for the God of grace he had come to know in Jerusalem. Going face to face with Daniel requires Christians to go face to face with this piercing question: are we willing to live for God while we live in a world that is opposed to God?
