Daniel: God Protects, Reveals, Rules and Vindicates, Part 3
When believer’s encounter opposition, how should we respond, and how do we find the strength to do so? The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace answers those questions. And far from telling us simply to be strong and deal with it, this beloved story provides the key to remaining faithful to God in the midst of opposition. This wonderful story informs us how to find courage in the face of opposition.
Much of the material in this sermon is based on Paul House, Old Testament Theology (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1998), 327–45, and Michael Barrett, God’s Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel (Greenville, SC: Ambassador-Emerald, 2003).
