Burn Me Up

March 10, 2008 at 4:01 pm (Inspiration)

I have read the story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego so many times and it has been one of my favorites.  However, last Thursday night at the Shane & Shane concert I heard something from the story I’ve never heard…or at least I don’t remember this part of the story.  For those who don’t remember the story, King Nebuchadnezzar ordered everyone to bow to this gold image he had created, and whoever would not bow down would be thrown into a fiery furnace.  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to and said the God they serve is able to save them.

 

Here’s the verse that got my attention, Daniel 3:18- “But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

How incredible is that!  What a testament of their faith!  This verse has consumed me since then and has become my desire- that I can say I know my God can save me.  But if he doesn’t I will still believe and follow Him.
