Isaiah 56:1-7This is what Yehovah says:
and do what is right,
for my salvation is close at hand
and my righteousness will soon be revealed.
Blessed is the one who does this—
the person who holds it fast,
who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it,
and keeps their hands from doing any evil.”
Let no foreigner who is bound to Yehovah say,
“Yehovah will surely exclude me from his people.”
And let no eunuch complain,
“I am only a dry tree.”
For this is what Yehovah says:
“To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths,
who choose what pleases me
and hold fast to my covenant—
to them I will give within my temple and its walls
a memorial and a name
better than sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name
that will endure forever.
And foreigners who bind themselves to Yehovah
to minister to him,
to love the name of Yehovah,
and to be his servants,
all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it
and who hold fast to my covenant—
these I will bring to my holy mountain
and give them joy in my house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and sacrifices
will be accepted on my altar;
for my house will be called
a house of prayer for all nations.”
He is gracious and loving to all who choose to bind themselves to Him!
Let us love and rest in Him, walking in His ways holding fast to His covenant like He calls us to.
