Ezekiel 14:14 NLT “Even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were there, their righteousness would save no one but themselves, says the Sovereign Lord.”
God was speaking to the Israelites, and He mentioned the names of three men, famous for their righteousness among many unbelieving people. Here’s what was written about Noah, “Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.” Genesis 6:9. And about Job, God said, “There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” Job 1:8
Now I know the true meaning of the phrase, “one of a kind”. In their generations, those men were one of a kind, and they didn’t mind being one. Despite the fact that everyone else did wrong, they weren’t influenced and pressured to compromise.
Those three men are known for something, even by God. This is your time, in this day, in this generation, what are you going to be known for? When God needs to name names, will He mention your name? If Jesus tarries and there are generations after ours, would you be an inspiration for them? When you leave this world, what would you be known for?
