Redeeming Ruth Pt. 2- God’s Hand in Our Luck

In the second sermon in the Redeeming Ruth series, Pastor Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Church in Seattle introduces us to Boaz, the hero of the story of Ruth. We are told that Boaz is a distant relative of Elimelech, Naomi’s deceased husband. He is spoken of as a “worthy man” and continually displays such impeccable character that many have called him a “type” or prophetic example of Jesus Christ. The great preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon affectionately referred to Jesus as “our glorious Boaz.”

Join us Friday, July 18th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the second message in Mars Hill Church’s Redeeming Ruth series, entitled “God’s Hand In Our Luck.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.

Redeeming Ruth Pt. 1- God’s Hand in Our Suffering

Ruth is one of the most wonderfully written stories in all of Scripture. It is one of only two books in the entire Bible named after a woman, and the only book in the Old Testament named after someone who was not racially Jewish. It focuses on a female friendship between a young new convert, Ruth, and an older bitter woman, Naomi.

The story opens in one of the darkest seasons of Old Testament history when God’s people were living in sin during a famine. Naomi was a Jewish woman whose husband moved her to the godless town of Moab that was descended from incest in the days of Genesis. There, Naomi saw her sons marry Moabite women. She then experienced the death of her sons and her husband in Moab, leaving her destitute and alone. Although admittedly bitter against God, Naomi decides to leave Moab and return home to God’s people. One of her daughters-in-law, Orpah, stayed with her people and religion in Moab, at Naomi’s urging. But Naomi’s other daughter-in-law, Ruth, was determined to leave her people and religion to worship Naomi’s God and live with God’s people.
