Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
Wednesday, January 4, 2023

One day, King Nebuchadnezzar set up a great golden statue. When certain music was played, everyone was supposed to bow down and worship the statue. But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego loved and worshipped God, so they could not love and worship the statue.

King Nebuchadnezzar got very angry with them and said they must die. The three brave young men were tied up and thrown into a huge burning fiery furnace! When the king looked into the furnace, he saw them walking in the fire with a shining man who looked like the Son of God. The king asked them to come out, and out came Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They were not burned at all!

Nebuchadnezzar saw that God could keep His children safe even in a huge fire. Then he told everyone to worship the living God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego instead of a lifeless gold statue.


Would you like to hear another story from the Bible?
Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, made a golden idol.
He commanded everyone to bow down to the statue,
But three courageous men said no because their God said not to!

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
You didn’t worship the image of gold.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
I want to live my life like you and be so bold.

The angry king said, “Throw those men into the fiery furnace.”
But in the flames they did not burn.
God did something so marvelous;
They came out alive and didn’t even smell of smoke.
They praised their God who saved their lives.
Let everybody know!

[Repeat Chorus]

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
I want to live my life like you and be so bold.
