SERMON SERIES

ST GEORGE CHURCH

Knowing Jesus Is Walking With Us

I do hope you are finding our sermons from the book of Daniel encouraging. Each chapter reminds us of the greatness and power of our God


Daniel 3 features the terrors of fire. I know a little bit about such terrors. I remember being    part of the 1994 bushfires in Sydney that wiped out a big part of the neighbourhood where we were living at the time.  90 of our neighbours lost their homes and one woman lost her life.


About 18 months after the fires a young girl from our Church called Alison was cooking chips in her kitchen when a terrible fire broke out. Fortunately Alison had the presence of mind to act quickly and get herself & her 90 year old grandmother out in time before the kitchen which became a fiery furnace, burnt them up as well.


A few weeks after that kitchen fire I interviewed Alison in Church. Alison shared how she had been aware of God’s guidance & peace thru the whole incident. She was so thankful that they were saved. Then she showed us some burn marks and singed hair.  As the interview came to a close I noticed that a another girl from the congregation called Jodi who in tears, balling here eyes out. You see Jodi was one of the people who lost who house & all her belongings in the bushfire 18 months prior. The interview had brought all the horror back & Jodi could barely cope.


I share that story for it makes a powerful point. Fires are simply awful. They are horrendous. Being in the middle of a fire is to be avoided at all costs.  Yet Daniel 3 features 3 Israelites who behave in a very strange way. They allow themselves to be thrown into a flaming furnace. Now this is utter madness. What would make avoiding a furnace less than a number 1 priority?  Well the answer is - If doing so, meant denying the God that you worship.  The 3 Israelite exiles really believed only God should be worshipped. They committed themselves to obey God, so they would not bow before the image Nebuchadnezzar set up.  But   what exactly did these 3 believe about their God that made them do something which appears at first glance madness?  Well they believed in the promises given to their forefather Abraham. They believed they would receive blessing or good things if they kept trusting in their God.  This same God had rescued his people out of slavery in Eqypt. They knew about that. God had acted in power and love to bless his people then. They knew these things and remembered them when under incredible stress.


We know from the rest of the Bible, God’s blessings reached their climax when the greatest descendant of Abraham and these exiles was born. This one is of course Jesus Christ. Jesus reminds us most of all that our God is a God who keeps his promises.  For it is thru Jesus that all nations, all peoples can be blessed. For Jesus came us rescuer to die to conquer sin and death.


I think the 4th figure the King saw in the furnace may well have been the pre-incarnate Christ. Daniel 3 points us to the promise that Jesus gave before he returned to heaven. He will be with us always.  God didn’t take his 3 followers out of the fire, but  through it. Because Jesus is always with us by the power of the Holy Spirit we never have to face our challenges alone.


Such a thought should motivate us to keep trusting in Jesus.  For no matter what challenge we face (even a horrifying fire) Jesus will be there with us. I think such a God truly deserves our worship!



Yours in Christ,

 Mark Dickens
