"Bhagavad-gītā is instructed to Arjuna especially because Arjuna was a devotee of the Lord, a direct student of Kṛṣṇa, and His intimate friend. Therefore Bhagavad-gīta is best understood by a person who has qualities similar to Arjuna's. That is to say he must be a devotee in a direct relationship with the Lord. As soon as one becomes a devotee of the Lord, he also has a direct relationship with the Lord. That is a very elaborate subject matter, but briefly it can be stated that a devotee is in a relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead in one of five different ways:

 

1. One may be a devotee in a passive state;
2. One may be a devotee in an active state;
3. One may be a devotee as a friend;
4. One may be a devotee as a parent;
5. One may be a devotee as a conjugal lover.

Arjuna was in a relationship with the Lord as friend. Of course there is a gulf of difference between this friendship and the friendship found in the material world. This is transcendental friendship which cannot be had by everyone. Of course everyone has a particular relationship with the Lord, and that relationship is evoked by the perfection of devotional service.

But in the present status of our life, we have not only forgotten the Supreme Lord, but we have forgotten our eternal relationship with the Lord. Every living being, out of many, many billions and trillions of living beings, has a particular relationship with the Lord eternally. That is called svarūpa. By the process of devotional service, one can revive that svarūpa, and that stage is called svarūpa-siddhi-perfection of one's constitutional position. So
Arjuna was a devotee, and he was in touch with the Supreme Lord in friendship.

 (Srila Prabhupada, BG-Intro)

patram puspam phalam toyam
yo me bhaktya prayaccati
tad aham bhakty-upahrtam
asnami prayatatmanah

If one offers Me with
love and devotion a leaf, 
a flower, fruit or water,
I will accept it.

yat karosi yad asnasi
yaj johosi dadasi yat
yat tapasyasi kaunteya
tat kurusva mad-arpanam

Whatever you do, 
whatever you eat,
 whatever you offer or give
 away, and whatever austerities
 you perform -do that, 
O son of Kunti, 
as an offering to Me.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead has no material birth, activities, name, form, qualities

 or faults. To fulfill the purpose

 for which this material world is created and destroyed, He 

comes in the form of a human 

being like Lord Rama or Lord Krishna by His original

 internal potency. He has

 immense potency, and in 

various forms, all free from

 material contamination, 

He acts wonderfully. He is 

therefore the Supreme 

Brahman. I offer my respects 

to Him.

(SB 8.3.8-9)
