Dear e-News friends and church members,
No need to even think about it!
This was the reply given by three very brave men to a proud arrogant king! And in so doing placed their lives in mortal danger.
They were still young, with a very successful and lucrative life before them, yet now everything was on the line. Regardless of the loss or the cost they still said, ‘we don’t even need to think about it.’
They were, of course, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who by refusing to bow down to the 90’ golden statue were hurled into the fiery furnace. And so we learn that if you won’t bow you won’t burn.
And the three men become four as Jesus joins them in the fiery furnace.
It’s one of the greatest miracle stories of the Bible.
Today as we go through so many fires of affliction as they did, we also must refuse to compromise.
Don’t compromise on God’s ways, God’s word or compromise on God’s call.
These guys ended up promoted and blessed. They got the best of what the world offered without paying the world’s price.
As they came through, so will you if you stand firm on the promises of God and pursue His plan for your life.
Join me over the weekend as we continue our ‘Thriving’ series and teach ‘Fireproof Faith!’
Bring someone with you to church online.
Don’t forget there is lots of help around if you or your family need it, both practical and spiritual. And please do check to see all that’s being offered on church online.
Stay safe – love you guys,
