‘You want to kill me, while I tell you the truth.’

How far would you go for your faith? How firm is your belief? Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were placed in a fiery furnace for their faith. Jesus was constantly questioned and ultimately killed. How far would I go? In western society, Christianity is becoming countercultural. We do not face death, jail, torture or other atrocities for our faith, and yet we talk of it being difficult to live our faith in the world. How far are we prepared to go for our faith? Lent is a time to look to those who show us how to truly believe, to speak truth and stand firm trusting in God. ‘You must know, O king, that we will not worship the statue you have erected.’
