The Bible is full of beautiful prayers. Glorious metaphors, poetic imagery, mind expanding allegories and symbols describing the way people love God. But those four ordinary little words might be the boldest and most beautiful declaration of human love for God in all of scripture.
In this season, when we’ve finally been able to return to in-person worship, we are trying to focus on a less visible but more life-giving journey–one we can all make together no matter where we worship on Sunday mornings–a return to our first love for the Lord. Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego have a lot to teach us about what that looks like. These three friends are remembered for the way God rescued them from the fiery furnace, but their absolute devotion to God is the hidden treasure in their story. I’m excited to share their story with you.
