Ps Matt Prater How to Be Brave Part 3

Continuing our series on the Book of Daniel called, “How to be Brave.”

Pastor David Guzik says, “We can imagine the enormous pressure on Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego to compromise. Everything in front of them – the king, the furnace, the music, their compatriots, their competitors – all of it conspired to convince them to compromise. Yet God was more real to them than any of those things.”

They surrendered themselves completely to God – body, soul, and spirit. It was the kind of submission Paul wrote of in Romans 12:1: “present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.”
