For The Love of Ruth
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
Ruth was the daughter-in-law to Naomi; at this moment she is clinging to her mother-in-law asking her not to force her to leave. The bond between them is inseparable.
Their hardship was the cement to their love for one another. Naomi’s husband had died, and then her two sons passed as well. Ruth was married to one of the sons, and Orpah to the other.
Out of destitution, Orpah decided to go back to her own people. But Ruth had a love that believed, she loved Naomi so much that she believed Naomi’s faith in God.
Naomi loved so much that she was willing to give up her family so that they could survive.
God loved so much that He saw her cry, and He became her God.
Ruth’s desperate cry of devotion was so powerful that the Lord placed her into a place of redemption. A threshing mill at the feet of Boaz.
Ruth married Boaz, and Boaz had a son and named him Obed, and their grandson was named Jessie, and his son was David the King.
The Love of God can bring you places you never thought possible.
He is: Jehovah-Goel
