For when we were still decrepit, lost sinners—enemies—He sought us out. He saw in us what only His love could see. He saw treasures in the midst of corruption, sin, and depravity. He purchased as precious what many considered worth little or even worthless. He saw beyond our state and saw what only His grace could produce. Now we can more readily understand the words of Scripture, “God purchased you at a high price. Don’t be enslaved by the world” (1 Cor. 7:2 NLT). Why would any person who has been so loved and valued want to return to the system where they were once enslaved and viewed as so insignificant in relationship to our true value?
Noah’s close relationship with God was born out of a confidence that God would respond to those who pursue Him, to those who dare to believe and draw close to experience intimacy with Him. We witness this again with Abraham when God invites him to “walk before Me” (Gen. 17:1). This invitation is extended again and again with Isaac and Jacob; even before Jacob was born God said, “Jacob I have loved” (Rom. 9:13). The Lord pursued him, as He does with us all, even when Jacob was not pursuing God. As Jacob ran from his brother he found God waiting to capture him.

In one encounter God secured Moses’ interest and he was never distracted again, no matter where he was—even when he returned to Egypt! Jesus said if anyone hears His voice and opens the door of their soul He will come in and break bread with them.
