Sometimes God uses the small parts of our lives to bring about a larger purpose for His Kingdom. From when the Isrealites were in the desert, to Ruth’s place in the bloodline to Christ, to your own story, God is intentional and purposeful.
We continue the series on the ‘Gospel According to Ruth’ by diving into an especially scripture-rich message. Pastor Karl builds a case on what it means to cling to God.
Today’s message will look a little different. Pastor Karl will be sharing from his Bible journal on what God has been speaking to him this week.
Ruth 1:16-17 shows Ruth talking to Naomi about how she will be with her wherever she goes, worship her God, and die with her. There is a serious bond created between the two, and they continue their journey hand-in-hand. How can we learn from Ruth and Naomi when we apply that to our relationship with God?
We were so fortunate to have guests from Israel, Rabbi Yehudah and Hadass Glick. You can give to Amitism (the program the Glicks have to help orphans and widows) by heading to htcfamily.org/give-online, choose your campus, give to “Kingdom Builders: with “Amitism” in the memo.)
Names are significant and mean something to the person they are bonded with. It can be prophetic, or in the past, they were changed when the character of the individual changed. Let see where this comes to play in Ruth.
