Verse of the Day: Isaiah 56:3-8

Isaiah 56:3-8 (English Standard Version)

 3Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the LORD say,
   "The LORD will surely separate me from his people";
and let not the eunuch say,
   "Behold, I am a dry tree."
4For thus says the LORD:"To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths,
   who choose the things that please me
   and hold fast my covenant,
5 I will give in my house and within my walls
   a monument and a name
   better than sons and daughters;
 I will give them an everlasting name
   that shall not be cut off.

 6"And the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD,
   to minister to him, to love the name of the LORD,
   and to be his servants,
everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it,
   and holds fast my covenant—
7 these I will bring to my holy mountain,
   and make them joyful in my house of prayer;
 their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
   will be accepted on my altar;
for my house shall be called a house of prayer
   for all peoples."
8The Lord GOD,
    who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares,
 "I will gather yet others to him
   besides those already gathered."

  1. Thank you for sharing this passage. It did touch me. Someone asked me recently about me not having children. I didn't think it was something to worry about but his question got me thinking. Now this verse jumped at me:
    "I will give in my house and within my walls
    a monument and a name
    better than sons and daughters;
    I will give them an everlasting name
    that shall not be cut off."

    I'm not sure about the context, but it sounds like a promise I can claim. :)

  2. Thank you for your comment :) God is faithful to all who love and follow Him. It's always a beautiful thing when His word provides comfort and personal ministry and meaning to those who read it. That's a beautiful promise to claim!
    ~abundant blessings in the Lord,
