• Naomi and Her Daughters-in-Law Devotional

    Ruth 1:1–14

    Elimelech and his family showed an imperfect faith by going to Moab. Yet, the end result of it would be salvation for Ruth, as we will see. While we should be careful to obey the Lord, we also shouldn’t think that God cannot redeem situations that have come about through our sin. Let us strive to obey the Lord, and if we find ourselves in a bad situation due to our sin, let us pray that the Lord would bring redemption out of it. View Resource

  • Ruth, a Faithful Gentile Devotional

    Ruth 1

    The Hebrew for clung in Ruth 1:14 is the same word used to describe the marriage relationship. In other words, Ruth clung to her mother-in-law in covenant fidelity, knowing that she was bound by her promise before the face of God to remain with and aid her mother-in-law, no matter how difficult it would be. This is the same devotion we are to have to the Lord’s people today. No matter our flaws, we Christians must love and serve one another. View Resource

  • Ruth and Naomi Devotional

    Ruth 1:15–22

    Ruth came to faith in the God of Israel, and we know that can happen only because God brought her dead soul to life (Eph. 2:1–10). Long before the coming of Christ, the Lord was bringing people outside of Israel such as Ruth into His people Israel. Today, He continues to regenerate souls through the preaching of the gospel. Whose soul can you pray for today, asking God to bring that person to new life in the gospel? View Resource
