Ya'll I am a sucker for 80's & 90's music. Oh my gosh, I just love it so much. I mean they don't make it like that anymore (for the sake of sounding really old). I mean old school Whitney, Janet, NKOTB you know who you are out there. You're about to go dust off your favorite mix tape and jam to the good stuff. Go on girl, I'm not gonna judge. Well, 1984 brought one of my fav's in, Let's Hear it For the Boy off the hit movie Footloose. I mean if that doesn't get your toes tappin', you're dead! So what does this have to do with the final installment of our Ruth study. Start by reading Ruth chapter 4 if you haven't already. We have journeyed with our two gals Ruth and Naomi to the end. We have seen them loose their family and make a scary, lonely trek to Bethlehem. Ruth began to provide for herself and her mother-in-law by working in the fields where she caught the eye of Boaz. At the leading of Naomi, Ruth went to Boaz to present herself and her estate to be redeemed by either him or the other guy in line. (see the chapter 3 post) Now we are caught up!
So, we close the Book of Ruth with a great ending, redemption has happened and we are setting up for the coming of Christ. It all points to OUR need for redemption OUR need for a Savior. The first time I read the book of Ruth it blew me away, this time it blew me away again! Go back and read books of the Bible you haven't read in a while, you will see them in a different light and learn new things each time I PROMISE!
For now, have a wonderful week following hard after God. My prayer for myself is Lord increase my Faith, feel free to join me in that adventure! This week don't' forget you are a daughter to the King BEAUTIFULLY, FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE! Redeemed in grace and love!
PS- Let's here it for the boy (I couldn't resist!):
