“RUTH – From bitter to sweet” A redemptive display of God’s passion for his people.

Bible Text: Ruth 4:1-22 | Preacher: Brian Watts | Series: Combined evening service | The book of Ruth tells of a young Moabite widow who, out of love for her widowed Israelite mother-in-law, abandoned her own culture, declaring, “Your people shall be my people, and your God my God” (1:16). Though she was destitute and needing to rely on the kindness of others, Ruth’s disposition and character captured the attention of Boaz, a close relative of her deceased husband. Boaz fulfilled the role of kinsman-redeemer and took Ruth as his wife. Ruth serves as a wonderful example of God’s providential care of His people, and of His willingness to accept Gentiles who seek Him. Ruth was an ancestor of Christ, and that effectively is what this redemptive story points us to.
