Summer Sermon Series: RUTH
We are story driven people. We love movies. We love books. We love knowing that our lives are a part of something important and, perhaps, bigger than ourselves. But, naturally, we all want to be the star or hero of the story we find ourselves a part of. We want to be the difference maker or the “self-made” individual that rises from the ashes and ascends to the clouds. What happens, however, when all around you seems to be crumbling and you are left with nothing but ashes? What happens when our lives take a turn for the worse and we find ourselves a part of a story we no longer want to be a part of – a story that seems bitter and hopeless? Ruth is a book about such a story. It is the story of famine to fullness, but not in the way any of us would expect. Ruth reminds us that we are a part of a bigger story than ours where, thankfully, we are not the hero, God is, and he is working through our pain and suffering to bring us a fullness our hearts cannot imagine. A fullness that ultimately finds itself in Jesus Christ.
Join us over the next 4 weeks as we travel through this short, yet, powerful book in the Old Testament about God’s sovereignty, faithfulness, grace, and kindness.
