Heroes (Ruth) – Week 1 – 2/3/2019
Read Ruth Chapter 1
When Naomi wants her daughters-in-laws to turn back and return to Moab, Orpah does but Ruth declares she will remain with her. There are 4 things to note about Ruth in this chapter:
This is Ruth’s conversion! Ruth runs to God, not away from Him.
Ruth shows an incredible amount of faith!
One of God’s promises in pain is that you don’t have to do it alone! When you find yourself in pain, or in a situation that you don’t know what to do, part of God’s grace in your life is community. The enemy always picks out the isolated.
Only a sovereign God could use the bad leadership of Elimelech, the pain of these three widows, and even the forbidden friendship of these women to literally save the world!
Sometimes we suffer pain because of us. Sometimes we suffer because of the enemy. But if you are in Christ, then God never wastes a hurt!
