Did you know that fire is one of the most important forces in human history? It can destroy and it can renew.
In Biblical days, we see three Hebrews thrown into a furnace as punishment for not worshipping a man-made idol. However, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, after being put through the test of fire, found Jesus in their midst, and emerged unharmed. The witnesses who saw them coming victoriously out of the fire also, “… saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.” Daniel 3:27 NIV.
The only things burned up in the fire of that furnace were the very ropes, the very things the world used to bind them. When we stay near Jesus, we too will emerge from our troubles victoriously! We can cast off the ties that bind us through this world and its trials, and remain pure and unscathed, without a scent of sin to be detected. We will then discover that our trials have made our faith as valuable as gold!
