What a reputation

Ezekiel 14:20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.

When God wanted to tell them how much the judgment was coming He mentioned 3 men. He mentions Noah, Daniel, and Job. He says that He would not stop what was about to happen even if they were alive. Their prayer wouldn’t even stop the judgment. They would only be delivered or escape themselves.

What grabs my attention is that when Ezekiel wants to teach the people about what God is doing he shows the severity of it by mentioning 3 great men. God and all the people know about these men, their lives an their testimonies. Even they weren’t on such a special footing to be able to stop this problem.

I want to be thought of by God when He thinks of His people and their testimony. I want those that know me to know that I am a man of God and have that testimony. Do you think about your testimony and the reputation that you are building? Should you?
