Portraits of Grace: Ruth

Portraits of Grace: Ruth

This Advent we are looking at the very first Christmas passage in the bible: Jesus’ family tree (Matthew 1:1-17), which highlights five women, whose surprising inclusion in this tree serves to highlight God’s grace. This week we look at the story of Ruth, a widow from Moab that entrusts her life to the LORD and pledges her life to care for her mother-in-law who has also been widowed. How will they survive? Through Ruth’s courageous steps of faith, the LORD meets her and Naomi’s needs while also demonstrating his steadfast love to his people by providing King David through whom eventually comes King Jesus.

Scripture References: Ruth 1:1-22, Matthew 1:1-5b

Treachery. Bravery. Loyalty. Scandal. Five women mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus Christ connect threads of the gospel to the Christmas Story. Little did these women know that God was working through each of them to rescue the world through Jesus. Hear how their stories become portraits of grace that bring hope to our lives this Christmas season.
