What an incredible portrayal of our redemption in Jesus Christ displayed in Ruth's redemption in Ruth chapter 3 ! As we continue our journey with Ruth we discover this is so much more than just another "run of the mill" love story.
Ruth 2 shows a beautiful depiction of the gospel of Jesus Christ. No matter what catastrophe. circumstance or difficult situation...there is always HOPE in Christ Jesus.
The narrative of Ruth and Naomi in Ruth 1 is an incredible picture of the gospel. What are we to do when we are mired in the lowest of situations, circumstances and sin? What are we to think when we cannot feel God or hear Him? we do not abandon, we trust. He is faithful. There is hope. His name is Jesus.
God is not concerned about things as much as He is concerned about His people's hearts? From the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks, the hands serve, and His people give with cheerfulness.
Jesus said that we would should and ought to be known by our love. Do we share, serve, love, and are we being sanctified in the Jesus' name?
How do we begin to live beyond ourselves. Jesus made it clear that we are to be crucified with Christ. How will this affect our worship?
Jesus is the greatest gift because He provides for our greatest need. We need rescuing from our sin and only His love is the answer.
In Christ Jesus we have been gifted with lasting, inexhaustible joy. What an amazing Savior we celebrate at Christmas!
In a world full of conflict, how can there be peace? Where is it? It has been 2033 years....we are waiting Jesus? Scripture reminds us that Jesus came as the Prince of Peace: not as the source of national or universal peace. Our peace should be based on a relationship—a relationship with Jesus Christ.
