God of Harvest

A Series in Ruth | February 21 – April 9, 2017

Set in the fields of God’s unfailing love and eternal purposes, Ruth takes us through heights and depths of the human drama.  With God an ever-present guide, we follow one family’s journey through loss into hope and onto redemption.  Along the way, there is grief, radical love, community, surprising grace, and redemption.  The ultimate redemption rises beyond even what Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz can imagine, as the story culminates in the coming of God’s promised Messiah.

God of the Harvest: Belonging (Ruth 4:1-12)

One of the ways to understand redemption is with the idea of purchasing from bondage, which is what we see in Boaz’s actions here. As people bought by God, we begin to understand and experience true belonging.

God of the Harvest: Willing Love (Ruth 3)

Boaz redeems Ruth not because he has to, but because he wants to. In this picture of love, we’re directed toward a God who loves and redeems us with the same heart.

God of the Harvest: Redeemer (Ruth 2:13-23)

We don’t know what’s around the next bend of our lives, but we know the Lord is at work and that He – our redeemer – will provide, allowing us to “harvest from the sheaves” of his grace.

Following a season of devastating loss, Naomi experiences unexpected love. We see that love sows for a harvest, even in what looks like barren soil. Do you believe God can change your script?

God of the Harvest: Loss (Ruth 1:1-5)

Ruth begins in a season of loss. For Naomi, the fields are razed; the crops are bare. How does God call his people to walk through loss? What can we stand upon, even amid devastation?
