Title: The help of God
Text verse: Ruth 1: 16
But Ruth said: “Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; for wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.”
Message: Let us trust in the help of God
- Naomi and Ruth were in a desperate situation, but contrary to all appearances God had not forgotten them.
- Naomi remained faithful to God and also experienced His help.
- Ruth took Naomi’s faithfulness as an example for herself. She too turned to the God of Israel.
- Our task is to point other human beings to Christ, namely through word and deed.
