When your faith is on fire…


I.       Don’t let the heat determine your convictions

So honor the LORD and serve him wholeheartedly…
Joshua 24:14 (NLT)

So at the sound of the musical instruments, all the people, whatever their race or nation or language, bowed to the ground and worshiped the statue that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
Daniel 3:7 (NLT))

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, Your Majesty can be sure that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”                                                                  Daniel 3:17-18 (NLT)

He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual 20 and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21 So these men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. 22 The king’s command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, 23 and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace.
Daniel 3:19-23 (NIV)

II.      Remember God is with you

Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire. They aren’t even hurt by the flames! And the fourth looks like a divine being!”
Daniel 3:25 (NLT)


III.    Realize God can always be glorified through your fire

Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego…Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to even higher positions in the province of Babylon.
Daniel 3:28 & 30 (NLT)
