How do we respond to persecution? In part, our reaction can be determined by our view of God’s sovereignty. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow down to idols, and faced a fiery furnace as a result. Alistair Begg explores the details of God’s miraculous salvation of His servants and urges us to submit to and serve God with our bodies and lives, especially in the face of difficulty.
Faith Under Fire
Many of us have heard the familiar stories of Daniel from childhood: brave, committed, and obedient, Daniel held to his convictions, interpreted dreams, and faced the lions’ den. But does our familiarity extend to the real hero of the story?
In this series examining Daniel’s faith under the fire of trial, Alistair Begg explains that at the heart of these familiar stories is a good and sovereign God who works powerfully for the good of His people and the glory of His Name. We can be encouraged that the same God who reigned over the events in Daniel’s time still sits on the throne today. It is His will to glorify Himself through His Son Jesus, and as we face trials in this world, we can find our comfort in Him.
