Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“…and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them” (Dan 3:27). Daniel’s friends were cast into the fiery furnace by a pagan king for refusing to worship idols. Not only were they completely unaffected by the fire and flames, but an Angel (the Preincarnate Christ) came to their rescue and walked with them through the fire. Christ does not simply protect us as we walk through trials in life (although that would already be more than enough!); He walks through them with us.
Father, thank You for walking with us through the flame and the fire. Your Son took on infinite suffering for my sins; and Your Holy Spirit guides me everywhere I go! Amen.
