Conviction, diligence and testimony show whether or not we have a passion for the truths of God.
Because of the true knowledge we have received through God’s divine power and because of the precious and magnificent promises that come as a result we have a responsibility—A RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THE KNOWLEDGE THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US EFFECTIVELY so that we can do what God desires of us!
We are a place where you can grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What is the key to living a victorious Christian life? KNOWLEDGE
Not just any kind of knowledge…knowledge of the one who called us to salvation!
This genealogy was a very significant piece to the puzzle in the line of Jesus! Redemption had to take place for the line to continue. The line had been broken with no hope in sight…but Boaz rekindled that hope…
Redemption is a marvelous gift. It changed Ruth and Boaz along with those around them and the result of that redemption was Christ!
The book of Ruth closely parallels a believer’s redemption in Jesus Christ. However, in order for redemption to take place there must be someone who is willing to redeem–Redemption Needs a Redeemer.
Ruth had followed the instructions for physical redemption to a T as uncomfortable and unattractive as it was. She understood that redemption comes about in the redeemer’s way. Our spiritual Redemption requires us to follow all the instructions which causes discomfort and many times is unattractive but it is important, because redemption comes about in the redeemer’s way.
Ruth is given the purpose for and instructions on how to be redeemed by Boaz. Just like there were instructions for Ruth to be redeemed physically through her marriage to Boaz—There are instructions on how we are to be redeemed—and –if we do not follow them we cannot be saved.
Marriage is more than: 2 people falling in love—2 people having children—2 people coming together for companionship—The union of 2 people and 2 families—MARRIAGE IS A PORTRAIT OF CHRIST & HIS BRIDE—THE PEOPLE OF GOD!
