I thank God for Technology. I am from South Georgia but now live in Richmond, Virginia and the church I attended does live stream of the Sunday Service and Bible Study on Wednesday. Our pastor is Bishop Wade McCrae. Today he preached a sermon called, "It Didn't Break Me". In it King Nebuchadnezzar demands that 3 Hebrews bow down to his god an engraven image. Meshach, Shadrack, and Abednego did not bow and were thrown into the fire where they were not consumed. God protected them and Jesus walked in the fire with them.
This example of God's love and mercy is something we can see in our lives. Many times when I was lead astray I thought if only I would have stuck to the Bible teachings. God is love and he wants us to love others as we would love ourselves. Bishop McCrae preached The Problem they encountered and Their Purpose was exposed. He said that people would insinuate things about you Christians. We don't have to worry about the negative things that someone may say. We know the truth so don't let it get you down. Jesus is always there for us remember that during adversity and he will uplift your spirits and give you the means to walk through hardship.
During these times of the COvid-19 pandemic and Trump inciting and insurrection at the US Capitol we need God and his grace more than ever. When you are going thru the fire remember Bishop McCrae's sermon, "It didn't break me!!"
