Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Uncompromising Faith

Daniel 3: 17, 18- “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

 

A few weeks ago, our pastor focused part of his sermon on the familiar story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.  

Because these men stood up for God and what was right, they were thrown into the fiery furnace. God protected them. Not a hair on their heads was singed.

They had faith that God would take care of them, but stated that even if His plan for them was not to be saved, they would still be true to the Living God.

Do you, like many Americans feel you have been experiencing trial by fire? 

Financially, physically, emotionally?

Even spiritually?

It may not happen today—or even next week—but sometime in our lifetimes, we will likely be called upon to stand up for God.

It may be when a negative remark is made in a circle of friends. 

Or, it might be in response to a new law in our country.

Whatever it may be, we must decide NOW what we will do when that time comes.

Will we, like Daniel’s friends, stand up for the one, true and living God—no matter what the outcome?
