Into the Furnace – the limits of loyalty

…though it cost them everything, these men delivered one of the most impressive statements of loyalty to God found anywhere the Bible

Loyal to whom?

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego are confronted by a difficult choice. They can obey the order to worship  Nebuchadnezzar’s image or remain faithful to their God and face certain death.

These three men planned to quietly wait out this madness. However their jealous colleagues made sure Nebuchadnezzar was fully informed of their defiance.

Despite the cost these men chose to remain faithful to their God. They delivered one of the most impressive statements of determined loyalty to the unseen authority of God.

Trusting in the God who saves, these three young men teach us what it means to live faithfully in a faithless world.
