Redemption Story: Surprised by Grace – October 29, 2023

“Redemption Story: Surprised by Grace”
Text: Ruth 2:1-13
We continue our series on the book of Ruth by studying chapter 2, where Ruth first meets Boaz. Hearing of Ruth’s faithfulness to Naomi, Boaz extends grace to her in the grain fields. Like Boaz, we have the opportunity to lavish “hesed” — grace and loving kindness — to a world that desperately needs it; a world that would be surprised by this grace. As people of God, let us be faithful to the God who still enters our life, lives and walks among us through the valleys and high points, and helps to show us how to live gracefully and faithfully with our neighbors.
