Displaying the Worth of the Gopsel: An introduction to the Book of Philippians

As we start our study in the book of Philippians, it is good to consider and be warned about how easy it is to stray away from valuing the goodness and glory of the Gospel. It is good to consider whether we are just desiring the fruits of the Gospel rather than the Gospel itself: a restored marriage, a cleaned up life, a balanced home budget, etc. versus forgiveness of sin and peace with God. Simply put, it is good to consider how easy it is to leave our first love of Christ Himself.

Grace Abounds Still Yet More

As we finish the book of Ruth we are brought to consider the end or goal of all histories and all stories: God's coming Redeemer. The author of the book of Ruth draws the attention of the readers beyond the sphere of God's lovingkindnesses to Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz as individuals, to God's lovingkindnesses to the nation of Israel when they were in the dark ages of their history, and finally to a coming redeemer who would come after David. The One who will sit on the throne of David forever.

Greater Than We Can Imagine: Our Sinfulness and the Greatness of the Savior

This Easter we considered the blessing it is that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. Because He died for sinners and was raised from the dead, we also have confidence and hope that we too can be raised. If we have placed our hope in Christ and Christ alone, then our identity is wondrously linked with Christ. Even though we are dead in our trespasses and sins, if we turn to Christ in faith, we will be made alive together with Him, be raised with Him, and seated with Him in the heavenly places. Though our sins our great, greater than we can imagine, the Savior, Jesus Christ, is all the greater!

Grace in a Time of Need

In Chapter 3, we get a view into the lives of Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz and how hope in God's Word and His promises fosters hope and actions toward giving grace to others in their time of need. God is a God who sits upon a throne of grace ready to give to those who come mercy and grace to help in time of need. As we continue to unfold the story of the book of Ruth, we continue to see God pouring out His grace through Naomi, Ruth and Boaz to one another as an encouragement for us to keep hoping in God who gives grace to those who seek refuge under God's wing in their time of need and to be used of God to be a giver of God's grace to others in their time of need.

Seeking Refuge under the Wings of God: Grace and Humility not Wages and Rights - Part 2

God continues to demonstrate His over the top grace in and through the interchange between Ruth and Boaz at the barley field. Ruth demonstrates the unswerving, tough, and hardworking trust in God as she gleans in Boaz's field. She seeks refuge under God's wing as she entrusts herself to His Word. Boaz demonstrates the heart of God who is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and truth as he not only obeys God's Word in a spiritually dark time in Israelite history, but also goes beyond the letter of the Law and carries out the spirit of the Law in his protecting and providing generosity. All of these demonstrations of grace are God continuing to be faithful to His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as He continues His lovingkindnesses to Naomi.

Amen
