The Secret Of Daniel's Success
Daniel 9
Two of the most noticeable things about Daniel are that he navigated life in exile brilliantly and that he had a disciplined, faith filled prayer life. In Daniel 9, we zoom in on what that prayer life looked like and get practical as to how we can order our private, devotional lives to be like Daniel.

Participation In Babylon
Daniel 4
In today’s chapter, we see God bring about an incredible change in the King of Babylon. But it was only possible because one of his people chose to participate in Babylon. Jonny opens up the amazing story we find in Daniel 4 and asks what we can learn from the incredible balancing act that Daniel plays as he faithfully serves God at the centre of Babylonian culture.

Leaving a legacy of people
2 Kings 2:1-15
Elijah was a man who made a mark and left a legacy. As his life ends (kind of!) we see that legacy, and it is not just a legacy of famous deeds and mighty miracles, but it's a legacy of people. Jonny explores how we can learn from Elijah in this by rejecting the lone ranger method of changing the world, and look to make our mark by investing in those around us.

We Can Be Like Elijah!
1 Kings 18:41-46
James 5:17-18 makes it very clear that Elijah isn't a spiritual superhero to gawp at, but an example to emulate. While our exploits of faith may look very different to his, we too are called to walk in his footsteps to advance God's kingdom in our lives and the key way we can do that is by putting prayer at the centre of our lives, as he did.

A Different Kind of Kindness
1 Kings 17:17-24
As Elijah gears up for his return to public ministry in Israel, he encounters a tragedy and responds with incredible kindness. What he models is a challenge to all of us to act the same: to keep our eyes open to the need around us and respond with kindness- a costly, selfless, compassionate kindness that is totally at odds with the expectations of the society around us.
