It Is Not Good To Be Alone

We live in a culture that has no sure foundation for marriage and family. The book of Ruth can help us examine the contemporary relational chaos, the nature of marriage, and the ways of God. It is not a story of triumphant romance, rather a story of redemption and discovery of God's unexpected gifts. Singleness, widowhood, childlessness, and other disappointments are clearly portrayed. Naomi in particular does not get the life she wished for and yet in the end her gratefulness is unmistakable.

Scripture References: Ruth 4:1-12

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.
