Decisions Determine Destiny (6 of 10)
Restoring Your Passion for Life
Daniel 1:3-6; 8
If you would, take your Bible and open to Daniel 1:3. The message today is on "Decisions Determine Destiny". We have been talking about renewing your passion for life. Decisions determine destiny whether it is a decision you make today, a small decision or a large decision. Today we are going to talk about a young man who was a teenager and the decision that he made in this particular case determined his greatness. It determined his destiny; it determined the kind of person he would be for time and for eternity. And it determined the reason his name is in the Bible. And he is one of the few people in the Bible about whom nothing bad is said. We know that no one is sinless, but there is nothing evil that is said about Daniel in all the Bible. Everything that is said of him is good, everything that is said of him is commendatory and that is not true even of David, the great writer of the Psalms, it is not true of Moses who gave us the Ten Commandments, but of Daniel nothing negative is said.

The passion we have to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength determines the decision we make. And the little decisions that we make determine our destiny.
