No Need to Answer for Refusing to Worship Idols

King Nebuchadnezzar put up an image that was at least 90 feet high, and he expected everyone to worship it, and if someone did not, that person would be thrown into a burning fiery furnace, but at least three men refused to do so, even knowing it would cost their lives.
The king questioned them and this is what the Bible says, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter'” (Daniel 3:16).
Those three men always did what was right and good for the empire of Babylon, but when it came to matters of worship, that entered a realm above Babylon, and so they told the king boldly that they did not have to answer him as to why they refused to worship his image. Nevertheless, they could answer and they did, but you will have to read what they said.
O God, in the name of Jesus, give us all the uncompromising spirit of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, even if it means losing our lives! Amen!
