17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”
Our faithfulness to the Lord Jesus Christ must be absolute without wavering even an inch but must be steadfast. If money, family, friends, career have taken preeminence in your life, your faithfulness to Jesus Christ has been compromised. In the other hand if you are bowing down to a statue or image in the form of a man, woman or any created thing then you have abandoned the Lord. Abandoning the Lord for the pleasures of life is not worth an eternity of torment. Wake up before it’s too late.
