In Daniel chapter 3, we see that God protects his chosen representatives in the fiery furnace when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refuse to bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar's gold statue. Their bold faith in God gives them the courage to stand by their convictions and informs their choices. We as Christians are challenged to exercise this same kind of faith that refuses to bow down and is spiritually fireproof. Just as with these men, God can use our faith to convince critics of Christianity. God also saves us through His son Jesus Christ. The Son walked through the fires for us. In what area is God calling us to exercise bold faith?
From Series: "Bold as Lions: The Book of Daniel"
This series explores the narrative of the unlikely hero, Daniel. Even though God's people are in exile because of their unrepentance, the God of Abraham, Jacob and Issac has not given up on them. God uses Daniel and his friends to: (1) Embolden us to stand firm in the face of opposition, especially when the deck is stacked against us; (2) Give hope to His representatives that God is still sovereign over the affairs of the world and will strategically place us to be people of influence; and (3) Reveal that God sovereignly uses powerful kings and kingdoms in his cosmic plans to bring justice and His eternal kingdom. Will we be bold as lions and trust in God's sovereign plan through trouble?
