But even if He does not.

Daniel 3:13-18

Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?”

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.

I can’t really add much to that without being way too vulnerable, even for me. (Which is saying a lot.)

Even if He does not. Yet I will serve Him. Yet I will love Him. Yet I will be His. For He is HOLY HOLY HOLY.

    I just love this story! Hence the name of the most amazing band in the history of the world…maybe even the universe! Putting your entire trust in the Lord may be easy to say, but I tell you, it is a very hard thing to actually do. Taking our eyes off of ourselves and on our circumstances and pointing them upward is something I need (maybe everyone needs) to learn and find security in…because He is so good!

    You guys. I think he means NSYNC.

    And may I just add that I’m laughing outloud at my word verification because it has a dirty word in the middle of it.

    Yes, I’m still 13 on the inside.
