01 Mar Trial By Fire (Dan 3:25) by Dr. Rich Reich
“In the fire Azariah stood up and prayed aloud.” ~ Dan 3:25 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: Lent is the imitation of Jesus’ forty days in the desert. It is a desert experience in which we undergo “a trial by fire (1 Pt 4:12). In the midst of the flames, we are tempted to grumble against the Lord or blame other people of our trials. We must overcome these temptations and stand up in the fire to pray as Azariah did. By faith, we must face the harsh realities of our sins, and commit ourselves to follow the Lord with our whole heart. All In Christ for Pro-Life.
