Sermons about Naomi
No one is immune to it. In other words, we have all done it...and the "we" includes all of humanity (even my atheist and agnostic friends). We have all had our view of God shaped by our surroundings. For some, this has led them to believe there is no God, or at least that there is not enough evidence. I suppose you could say it (meaning our surroundings shaping our view of God) is only natural... However, since when has the Bible ever called us to do what comes naturally? Granted, this sermon does not seek to address those who are atheist or agnostic directly, but it does still touch on a truth: There comes a time in life where you have to choose if the surroundings you have faced and your experiences are going to shape your view of God...or if you will allow the sovereign God of the Bible to shape your responses and actions.

At the end of the book of Ruth we are amazed to find out that the wonderful way God brought Ruth and Boaz together becomes a great blessing to God's people Israel in a few generations. God's grace is amazing and His love endures from generation to generation!
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.
