The world, like Nebuchadnezzar, expects us to all follow its fashions and to obey its rules. The god of this world is the devil, and he claims implicit obedience. Sin in some form or other is the image Satan sets up and requires us to serve. If we mean to be Christian, and therefore intend to cast off the bondage of this present evil world, our resolve must be taken to bear all consequences rather than worship the idol of the hour. We cannot be Christ’s disciples unless we have come to this point and abide by it, for Jesus leads only in the way of righteousness. The world may demand that we should yield to its mandates, but as servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, we will refuse to do so. As Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said to Nebuchadnezzar, so will true believers say to the world, “We will not serve other gods or worship the gold statue you set up”  C.H. Spurgeon
