When I read Isaiah 65:1-16, especially verse two about a rebellious people who walk in a way that is not good following their own devices, I visualize a person in a big city walking down the sidewalk with a mass of people about to cross over a busy intersection. They have their face buried in their mobile device. You've seen this person. Maybe you've even been this person. It's such a prevalent sight these days.
He is STILL ready to be sought by those who do not ask,
Who will cross your intersection today seeking the truth you have? Be the light in your little part of the world. Look for the seekers. Share the Truth! You were created for such a time as this.
I love when the New Testament refers back to the Old! The Old Testament still has so much relevance for our lives today. Don't let anyone ever tell you it doesn't!
Romans 10:20 refers back to the beautiful passage of Isaiah 65. The entire chapter of Romans 10 is a message of salvation for all to read.
Take a moment today to read both of these passages. They are an accurate portrayal of where Israel was during the days of Isaiah, and an equally accurate portrayal of where we are today.
