- Life Stages
In week 6 of the Ruth sermon series, we are going to talk about how grace and sin are two constant threads in the stories of people in Scripture and how God tells His story through those people. Generational faithfulness matters because a legacy of the grace of God unfolds throughout the testimonies of people. Ruth’s life and story was not so she would be remembered as Boaz’s wife but so that God would use her to point to the greater Boaz…the greater Kinsman Redeemer.
In week 5 of the Ruth sermon series we see that the story of Ruth reminds us that the Gospel is not just practical but also beautiful. It is a beautiful act of redemption because Jesus is our perfect Redeemer. Ruth was given a new identity because she let Boaz work on her behalf. Boaz fulfilled the role of kinsman redeemer in Ruth’s life and Christ has fulfilled the prophecy of Savior of the world. Christ has paid the ultimate price and bought us with His blood. He has given us a new identity as sons and daughters.
