Once Naomi realized that Baoz, who had showed such kindness and mercy to Ruth and Naomi in Ch. 2, was a kinsman-redeemer, she sprung into action. She instructs Ruth on how to present herself to Boaz to invite marriage. Naomi becomes active in seeking God's blessings in Ruth's life through this custom of a kinsman (levir)- redeemer (goel). This sermon extracts the wisdom we need, the dutiful obedience to which we are called, and the gracious redemption of which we partake. We can learn from Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz about faithful Christian living.
This sermon shows how God is still present in the lives of those who suffer great loss. It is evident in the lives of Naomi and Ruth after the deaths of their husbands. Christians today can find comfort in knowing that God loves and cares for His people even when life turns painful and apparently hopeless.

Lee Leadbetter of Reformed Univ. Fellowship-International (RUF-I) challenges the listeners to consider the lostness of those around us, the greatness of God, and the power of the Gospel to deliver from spiritual ignorance. The sermon was delivered for our Mission-Focused Worship.
Upon arriving at the tomb of Jesus on the first day of the week, Mary was shocked at what she saw. The stone rolled away, the tomb empty, and the burial clothes lying alone. What had happened?

The crowd that gathered on the first day of the week to welcome Jesus as 'King'--reflective of Zechariah's prophecy-- and the children who continue the "Hosannas!" into the temple provide us an example of worship. The emphasis of this Palm Sunday sermon is the response and nature of that worship and its instruction for modern Christians. Worship is celebration for what Christ has done for us. Let us examine the story again and learn to worship 'he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
