Sub-Topic 1: THE COMMAND TO WORSHIP KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S IMAGE

Faith is the bedrock and foundation on which the Christian religion is built. Faith is an absolute trust in God and His power in spite of unfavourable situations. It is man’s personal conviction and trust in God arising from a direct personal relationship with God.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were young Hebrew men who had faith and confidence in God even while they were in captivity in Babylon. They dedicated themselves to the worship of God and a strict observance of God’s ordinances and statutes. Their virtues, qualities and their excellence in the special school of the Chaldeans earned them appointment as officials in the Babylonian kingdom. It happened that the king (Nebuchadnezzar) made a golden image which he set up in the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon. He invited all the principal officers of the province for the dedication ceremony. He ordered the people regardless of language or nationality to fall down and worship the image as soon as they heard the sounds of musical instruments played. He had clearly stated the punishment for flouting the order which was that, the offender would be thrown into a burning fiery furnace. All the people in his domain complied with the provision of the king’s decree by worshipping the image.
