Daniel 3

Reading today in the Bible in Daniel 3...

What an awesome thing it is to read about people like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Just think about it... of all the billions of people who have ever lived on earth, these three guys and their incredible faith made the cut and were included by God Himself when he wrote his Book.

In the story, these three guys had a decision to make. Either they would bow down to other gods or risk being thrown in a fiery furnace. They didn't budge from their convictions. They believed God would rescue them from the fire but even if he did not they were not going to bow to other gods.

What work does God have for me or for you that is as risky and faith-requiring as that?
Do we have enough faith for God to call us to such a work?
