It’s a story of redemption. It’s my story because I needed a Redeemer, someone to fill up the hole that was deep within my soul. I needed the Only One who could save me from eternal separation from God.
It’s clear to me that the story of Ruth in the Bible is the story of everyone who has put their faith in Jesus. I can see God orchestrating his love and grace in every step of the story. Without Jesus in our lives, you and I would all exist in a famine, without hope – stuck in our past.
But in Jesus we have found our kinsmen Redeemer! Hallelujah!
Jesus paid the price of our sins for us so we could make him Lord of our lives and become part of his forever family. When we admit that we need a Savior and turn away from our rebellion and sin while turning toward Jesus, we become filled with the power of the Holy Spirit under God’s umbrella of grace and blessing.
“Praise be to the LORD, who this day has not left you without a kinsmen redeemer.” Ruth 4:14.
Thank you, Abba Father.
