Christ Will Never Leave You...He is Your Strength!
Daniel 3:24-27 New International Version
24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” 25 He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”

“If you truly are sorry ... I forgive. I know if you go to God and ask Him, He will forgive you.” Those are the words of a man whose brother was shot and killed in 2018. He said those words to the women who shot his brother while standing in the courtroom during her sentencing hearing. She was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. But the brother shared that message with her and then asked, and received permission, to hug her. That man, like Rach, Shach, and Benny, had been through the “fires” of hell. But someone was always with them and always will be. While his grief was real, the fires of death and hell did not scorch that man’s soul. Christ will never leave you nor forsake you. He will always be your strength.
