Chapter-a-Day Isaiah 65

Add as friend. "I've made myself available to those who haven't bothered to ask. I'm here, ready to be found by those who haven't bothered to look. Isaiah 65:1 (MSG)

If there's one key thing I've learned about relationships it is this: you can't have a genuine relationship without two parties. Relationships require two who are willing to interact with one another. If I reach out to someone on Facebook and add them as a friend, we can only truly interact and share if that person confirms me.

When Jesus came to sacrifice Himself for the sins of all He, in effect, reached out to click "add as friend" for each of us. We don't truly enter relationship until we, in our hearts, confirm Jesus as our friend and reach out to enter relationship with Him.

"Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you hear me call and open the door, I'll come right in and sit down to supper with you." Revelation 3:20 (MSG)

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Isaiah 65”

  1. 1-7 “I’ve made myself available to those who haven’t bothered to ask.
    I’m here, ready to be found
    by those who haven’t bothered to look.
    I kept saying ‘I’m here, I’m right here’
    to a nation that ignored me.
    What amazes me about this passage is God’s endless ability to be available to everyone. That should part of our Message. God is waiting for you! He wants to spend time with you! I pray today that those in my life who don’t know God seek and find Him today.
