Ruth 1: The small story within the big story
In the first sermon in our series on Ruth, Pastor Matthew Watson explores how the story of Ruth fits into the bigger story of God's redemption.
Ruth 2: Providence and Participation
Have you ever wondered how God provides? Pastor Justin Fung talks about how Ruth 2 shows us that God provides, in large part through people of compassion and commitment, who care for one another and the common good. Or to put it more personally: no matter our situation, we can be—we are called to be, we are needed as—instruments of God’s blessing, offering healing and grace to others.
Ruth 3: Displays of Character and Hope
Pastor Watson highlights how Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz exhibit fidelity, integrity, and hope - and how these qualities in Ruth point us to Jesus.
Ruth 4: Resilience, Risk-taking and Redemption
In the final sermon in our series on Ruth, Pastor Lisa Rodriguez-Watson asks, "What does it mean to live faithfully forward?" We often believe the lies and labels that people give us because of our circumstances or things that have happened to us, but God wants us to see ourselves the way God sees us. Despite her background and challenges, Ruth was full of resilience and determination. She took faithful risks, leading to her redemption. As a foremother to Jesus, Ruth points the way toward him.
