Join us as we study an integrated Scripture in an effort to live authentic lives

In Daniel 3 we dig into the famous story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego as they defy King Nebuchadnezzar and find themselves in a fiery furnace heated to 7 times the normal intensity.  We talk about idolatry, and how easy it is for us to find ourselves in idolatry, and how similar it looks to what King Nebuchadnezzar did - even when it's on a much smaller scale.  We also examine what our 3 heroes were going through as they prepared for this moment - what is behind the text - because they were serving in leadership for the many years this statue was being built and they knew what was coming.  We can learn so much from this story about how we can go through times in the furnace and how a similar choice to chill in the fire with God can allow us to come out unsinged and not smelling like smoke.  There is so much more to this story than we find in the Children's Bible where so many of us first encountered it.
