Scripture: Daniel 3:1–3:30

The Fiery Furnace
Daniel 3:1–30
May 31, 2015

Introduction

I. The golden image. Daniel 3:1–7

II. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego reject false worship. Daniel 3:8–18

III. Delivered from the fiery furnace. Daniel 3:19–27

IV. A fourth person meets them in the furnace. Daniel 3:24–25

V. The king honors the three mighty men. Daniel 3:28–30

Questions for reflection:

  • What qualities and beliefs enabled Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego to remain faithful and resist the temptation to compromise when threatened with death? What things should we be doing to prepare for possible persecution?
  • What might be the ‘golden statues’ of our culture that we may be pressured to bow down to?
  • What encouragement comes from seeing that the three Jews were met by a fourth person in the furnace?
