Ruth: A story of loss – Beth Bramstedt

Play Video

Today, Beth Bramstedt brings the opening message in a four week series on the book of Ruth. The focus primarily with this week was on Naomi and Ruth in Ruth 1.

The book of Ruth is a female Job story, where God is at work building his kingdom, and his image bearers (Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz) wrestle with devastating tragedy, yet demonstrate the courage to be transformed. Ruth’s bold advocacy for Naomi and her family lineage awakens Naomi, Boaz, and the townspeople to the active presence of YHWH’s hesed love that impacts not only Naomi’s family lineage, but the lineage of Jesus, and therefore us.

We hope this message encourages you and helps you know Jesus in a more real way. You can find the full sermon notes and other resources at our website.  Subscribe to us at our YouTube channel, on Apple Podcasts or on Spotify. You can also visit us at Facebook or Instagram.
