Boaz exemplified the generosity and condescension of Christ as he bestowed upon Ruth his undeserved favor. We should be grateful for grace and having received it, we give it.
Scripture: Ruth 2 - 4
This excellent four-part series on the book of Ruth illustrates life lessons learned from watching impoverished widow Ruth leave her land, place her faith in the Hebrew God and seek the protection of her kinsman Boaz. God has answers that we don't know about. His hand invisibly guides us. And, our faithfulness will always be noticed and rewarded.
Scripture: Ruth 1 - 4
This dynamite sermon shows the foreshadowing of Jesus in the book of Ruth. Begg shows how we can interpret the Old Testament in light of the revelation of Christ in the New Testament. Jesus, the kinsman redeemer, saves and protects a penniless young woman and an elderly widow. The marriage of Ruth and Boaz produces a host of believers borne from their lineage. Plenary...

Scripture: Ruth 1 - 4
Topic: Grace of God
We find unlikely women in Christ's family tree: Tamar (the deceiver), Rahab (the prostitute), Ruth (the pagan Moabitess) and Bathsheba (the adulteress). Each woman was redeemed by her faith in God. Ruth is a great example of God's surprising grace. As we reflect on our past, we can see the invisible hand of God guiding our way.

The picture of Ruth asking Boaz to marry her and become her "kinsman-redeemer" is a picture of how Christ became our "kinsman-redeemer." he became our kinsman by choice. He paid the full price of redemption. He restores our lost inheritance. He frees us from slavery to sin. He gives us a new relationship and a new future. By John Piper. ©2013 Desiring God Foundation.

King Solomon teaches many valuable lessons about love and romance in the marriage relationship. We learn from him that love is pure, love protects and love is passionate. In the marriage relationship, God portrays the intimacy that He wants to have with us. The divine romance is Christ laying down His life for His bride, the church.
