These three Hebrew guys looked death in the face so as to please the living God. If you so easily hide your identity as a child of God for fear of ridicule, what happens when you are faced with a death threat?
What is your excuse? What justifications have you, for compromising your stand? Even though their environment, like ours, was filled with corruption, it’s the personal relationship with God that these men built up within then that helped – and that’s really what matters. Do you not know that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world? Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Do you study the Bible? Is the power of God’s word alive in you?
Do you blame your elder siblings for influencing you negatively? Do you accuse your parents of neglecting their duty of teaching you the right things? Who and what do you blame? People have blazed the trail to show you that it is the relationship with God that you build on the inside that helps you to live a victorious life.
Yes, we live in an environment that is hostile to the faith and where sin is condoned; but this should not deter our commitment to Christ. If you truly know your God and live according to the Word, following Christ every step of the way in righteousness, wrong external influences will not make you falter or lose faith. The Bible says that If you fall to pieces in hostile, adversative conditions, then there wasn’t much to you in the first place. This period of your life is foundation – build it strong! Will you dare to stand apart for God today?
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to stand apart for you. I do not want to place the blame of my mistakes on others. Help me to build up a personal relationship with you and to internalize your word so much that it guides my every move and keep me away from sin. Amen
