Hello all, here is the text of my sermon from today. It is titled, “Lessons from the Fiery Furnace” and looks at the three young men Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from Daniel 3.
The three main points were…
- They were Different – they were different from their culture in that they did not bow down to the statue. Jesus was different to what people expected Him to be. Likewise as Christians are called to be different.
- They were Daring – they were daring in the way they stood up to King Neb. Jesus was daring in the he spoke out against the pharisees and turned over the tables in the Temple. We are called to be daring and make a stand for Christ.
- They were dedicated – they were dedicated t0 the point of being thrown into a fiery furnace. Jesus was dedicated to His Fathers mission in saving the world. We are called to be dedicated to God’s ways and God’s Kingdom.
PS. The audio will follow soon.
