Daniel 3:24-25
24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in haste. He declared to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” 25 He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.”

The backstory to today’s scripture text is very well known. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had refused to bow to the king’s statue of himself and were about receive the punishment required for not submitting to his command. After being thrown into the fiery furnace, they were miraculously rescued by who most people believe was Jesus Himself. This account shows the great value of not only having strong, confidant style relationships in your life, but the importance of those relationships being founded upon Christ. Any relationship that is going to be foundational in your life must be built upon Him. Think about what this story would read like if just one of the three men had buckled under pressure or fear. Would the other two have done the same? Fortunately that question will have to remain unanswered because all three could trust the faith of the others. When you seek those with whom you can align yourself, make sure that their faith compliments yours. In moments of pressure and difficulty you have to know that they are going to be able to stand with you. Seeking relationships with people of like faith will enable you to be the person of faith that you know you can be. Align yourself with those who will challenge you to remain strong in the faith that will enable to see victory in every test that life will bring. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
