My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm – Daniel 6:22 ESV.
As a Christian you strive to live a life that is worthy of the calling you have received (Ephesian 4:1). Your daily life ought to be ministering to people without you saying a single word. People should see Christ in you and should gravitate towards you because of the One living in you.
Daniel was such a person and his conduct was beyond reproach. His enemies were planning his demise yet they could not find any fault in his character (Daniel 6:4-5). His character was so impeccable that the king couldn’t sleep the whole night because he cared for him and knew he was a noble man.
When Daniel came out of the den he said he was blameless before God and men and it was the reason why he was spared. He understood that your reputation before men is of utmost importance. Because of his character the king made 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 for ever’ (Daniel 6:26).
Daniel’s character was enough to convince a pagan king that his (Daniel’s) God is the only living God. When people look at me what are they saying about my God? Are my conduct and character truly glorifying him? “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father,” Matthew 5:16 NLT.
