Hiding in Plain Sight

Ruth set out to glean during the barley harvest. She 'happened on to the field of Boaz' (2:3), and we are introduced to the third key figure in this story. Boaz is uniquely qualified to raise up and restore Naomi/Ruth from their desperate circumstances. God's provision, long in the making, was hidden from view and discovered in a beautiful way as Ruth and Boaz 'speak from the heart' to one another (2:8-13). As a 'kinsman redeemer' Boaz prefigures the great redemption found in Jesus Christ.

Scripture References: Ruth 2:1-23

From Series: "Great is Thy Faithfulness"

The book of Ruth is a marvelous story with a powerful witness to the faithfulness of God. It begins with tragedy: drought, dislocation, and death. It ends with a baby and a genealogy that forecasts the birth of a king. Ruth is a story that draws us in. Surprisingly, we discover ourselves in the experiences of men and women who lived in a simple agrarian society 3000 years ago. Most importantly, the faithful care of a loving God is made abundantly clear. This sermon series will expand our sermons preached in 1997, available online.
