When was the last time you were asked if you were a Christian? How did you respond? Did you back away from the conversation and try to change the subject or did you proudly stand up for your faith?
Over the last two days we’ve been reading Daniel 3, and we’ve seen how we firstly need to be aware of other idols in our lives and make sure that we prioritise God over all else. Secondly, we need to stand firm in times of trial and pray that God will never leave our side.
Like Daniel we need to be confident in our sovereign God. Let’s pray now:
Thank God that he is the one true God that loves us and will stand with us in hard times.
Ask for forgiveness when we worship other idols, and God becomes a long way down our list of priorities.
Pray that like Daniel we can boldly proclaim our faith to our friends and family.
