“At this time some astrologers came forward and denounced the Jews. They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “May the king live forever! 10 Your Majesty has issued a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music must fall down and worship the image of gold, 11 and that whoever does not fall down and worship will be thrown into a blazing furnace. 12 But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Daniel 3:8-12

Faith On Fire

At this time, King Nebuchadnezzar had a huge gold statue built after his own image. This monstrous idol was said to be about 90 feet tall. The three Hebrew men Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were rulers in the king’s palace, but you can say they were, “In the palace, but not of the palace.”

These three men, who were friends of Daniel, were sold out for God. They didn’t put money, luxury, reputation, or their own lives over God. Their motto was “G.O.E.,” God Over Everything.

That group of haters couldn’t wait to throw these men of God under the bus. They made sure their story was laced with all kinds of triggers to ignite the rage of the king – lies weaved in with the truth.

The “G.O.E.” Motto

As Christians, we really have to recognize what the idols of this world are, so that we don’t compromise our convictions. Sinners watch whatever they want and they don’t care if it blasphemes Jesus. They attend concerts of every music artist, except Christian artists. In addition, they blindly accept every social value on society’s list.

We have to be willing to love our enemies with the gospel, love our fellow Christians, and stand on the truth of God’s word, and promote it. No matter the cost, and even if all the laws in the world condemn our faith, we must be willing to accept the consequences and suffer for Christ.

Our haters will hate, but they are there so that God will be glorified in you. Don’t let the devil move you from your firm foundation. Obey God, without apology!
