THE THREE AMAZING ONES
In the book of Daniel, three amazing young men did an amazing thing. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were willing to end their lives for God.
They knew that God didn't want them to worship King Nebuchadnezzar's golden idol. Even though King Nebuchadnezzar warned them that they would be thrown into the fire, they did not give in. Instead, they remained faithful and went into the fiery furnace.
The furnace was so hot that the guards who threw them into the furnace were instantly killed. But, God sent an angel to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and they were saved without a single scratch!
The king was so astonished, that he gave a new law, "So now I make this law: The people of any nation or language must not say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Anyone who does will be torn apart. And his house will be turned into a pile of stones. No other god can save his people like this." (Daniel 3:29)
We, as Christians, need to have a strong faith. If we continue to serve God faithfully, He will help us through the "fiery furnaces" we face in our lives.
"Even if I walk through a very dark valley, I will not be afraid because you are with me. Your rod and your walking stick comfort me." - Psalm 23:4
