Three righteous-men

Published on

The persistent unfaithfulness of a nation stirs God’s wrath (Eze. 14:12-20). Israel was involved in idolatry. In God’s providence, He moved against the land (famine, sword, pestilence). It was so bad, that three righteous men like Noah, Daniel, and Job could not deliver it; they could only deliver themselves.

Has our nation reached the point of no return? It has been in persistent rebellion and drifting away from God for a long time. It may not be delivered. However, let us be righteous men and women: 1. To honor God; 2. Do what we can to influence others; 3. Deliver our own souls. 

This lesson examines three righteous men—Noah, Daniel, and Job—and notes how they serve as role models for us.
