This evening Paul Seiler will preach from Daniel 3 on the theme, "Christ with His people in the Fiery Furnace." The book of Daniel warns believers about persecution in a fallen world due to Satan's malice. Daniel's friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, preferred the fiery furnace rather than to disobey God. They stand as models to persecuted believers from the beginning of time to its end. Today's shift away from a Christian world makes Daniel 3 very relevant to us and Christians in the West. The good news is that Christ is with us in our suffering to stand firm in the faith, whether we live or die.
