In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Your god, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” The king speaks these comforting words to Daniel, and makes a confession of the divine protection that is given everyone, especially Christians. The only Person to whom this promise does not extend is Jesus. Jesus serves God continually and perfectly, and yet He will not be delivered from the roaring lion of the Law’s demands and God’s righteous wrath over sin. He will be handed over as the vilest offender ever to live and will endure the punishment we deserve. The Father will not spare His only-begotten Son from death, but He will allow Him to die so that we might live.
