Ruth Prepared to Meet Boaz There were other men who would gladly have married Ruth (v. 10), but they could not have redeemed her. Only a kinsman could do that, and Boaz was that kinsman. Since Naomi knew that Boaz would be using the threshing floor that night and staying there to guard his grain, she…
Book of Ruth
Ruth has proposed marriage to Boaz and he said yes. It appears that the maiden from Moab and the bachelor from Bethlehem are going to wed. However, a closer relative than Boaz has the first right of redemption and therefore can marry Ruth. Boaz is determined to settle the issue ASAP (cf. 3:18) and so the stage is set for our seeing “the rest of the story.” If nothing is impossible with God, how are we to proceed? What are we to do? How should we act? Chapter 4 provides 3 lessons we should learn.

Study in Ruth
In Need of a Favor Often we believe we are entitled to our blessings. When hard times fall upon us, we may wallow in self pity, doubt, and not think of how we can get out of our circumstances. I can remember many times when those around me helped me out in times of trouble. There was one winter when…

Adversity & Redemption
Recap: We are finishing the sermon series from the book of Ruth. Adversity and Redemption. The first sermon I preached about repentance.

Book of Ruth
In the steps that Ruth takes, recorded in this chapter, we see the steps God’s people must take if they want to enter into a deeper relationship with the Lord. Like Ruth, we must not be satisfied merely with living on leftovers (2:2), or even receiving gifts (2:14, 16). We must want Him alone; for when we have Him, we also have all that He owns. It’s not the gifts that we seek, but the Giver.

The Book of Ruth opens with three funerals but closes with a wedding. Not all of life’s stories have this kind of happy ending; but this little book reminds us that, for the Christian, God still writes the last chapter. In today's message Pastor Leger unpacks the correlation between Boaz and our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Sermon on the Mount
Today we look at Matthew 5:7 and the beatitude about being merciful. Ultimately God showed us the greatest form of mercy through His son Jesus. Listen today as we look into the story of Ruth and Boaz to discover how great God's mercy is. This is a love story that conradicts everything the world paints as love and ends with a promise. Listen up and be encouraged! (The song played in this sermon at 36:10 is called "What mercy did for me" and it is performed by the band People & Songs)
Book of Ruth
