10 Last week we saw three dead husbands and two dead sons

11 We witnessed two of the three widows roughing it 60 miles though the desert, then returning back to Bethlehem

12 Naomi said dont call me sweet & pleasant but rather call me bitter!

13 Can God use a despised foreign woman and the son of a prostitute?

14 LETS CHECK IT OUT!

15

16 Ruth 2:1 And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.

17 BOAZ Related to Naomis husband Elimelech Line traced back to the house of Judah Man of great wealth Related to Naomis husband Elimelech Line traced back to the house of Judah Man of great wealth

18 Ruth 2:2-3 2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. 3 And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech. Ruth 2:2-3 2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. 3 And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.

19 What is this Gleaning the Field stuff?

20 It was… Gods mercy to the poor, widows & foreigners Gods Law Gods mercy to the poor, widows & foreigners Gods Law Leviticus 19: And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest.

21 It was… Gods mercy to the poor, widows & foreigners Gods Law Gods mercy to the poor, widows & foreigners Gods Law Leviticus 19: And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.

22 Ruth Hit A Triple! She was poor! She was a widow! She was a foreigner! She was poor! She was a widow! She was a foreigner!

23 She just so happened to be gleaning from Boazs field!

24 Ruth 2:4-7 4 And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee. 5 Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this? Ruth 2:4-7 4 And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee. 5 Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this?

25 Ruth 2:4-7 6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab: 7 And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house. Ruth 2:4-7 6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab: 7 And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house.

26 Boaz Said: Who is this chick?

27 Ruth Said: Please let me glean

28 She didnt claim her rights even though it was the law

29 Learn To Say Please & Thank You!

30

31 Dont Claim Your Rights With God! Rather humbly come to Him by Grace

32

33 Ruth 2:8-9 8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens: 9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn. Ruth 2:8-9 8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens: 9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

34 Ruth was vulnerable!

35 She was a young, Gentile woman that was basically all alone in a dangerous situation

36 Boaz helped her not to fear He made special provisions for her He protected her from anyone who would harm her Boaz helped her not to fear He made special provisions for her He protected her from anyone who would harm her

37 Boaz Said: Stay in the field!

38 Stay In The Field! Look to God for your provision and protection and know that the grass aint greener on the other side!

39 Dont wander in religious fields! STAY WITH JESUS CHRIST! Dont wander in religious fields! STAY WITH JESUS CHRIST!

40 Galatians 1:6-7 6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:6-7 6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

41 Galatians 3:1-3 1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Galatians 3:1-3 1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

42 It would have been STUPID for Ruth to glean from any other field!

43

44 Ruth 2:10 Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

45 Ruth Said: Why are you so good to me?

46 Ruth Said: I am a Moabitess! My peoples name means Incest My people are the enemy of Israel! My peoples name means Incest My people are the enemy of Israel!

47 Are you amazed at how good God has been to you?

48 God is way too good to me!

49 Ruth 2: And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.

50 Ruth 2: The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust. 13 Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.

51 Boaz knew some things about Ruth Her loss Her love and commitment to Naomi Her desire to come to Israel Her loss Her love and commitment to Naomi Her desire to come to Israel

52

53 God Has Somebody Watching!

55

56 DEDICATION! HUMILITY!

57

58 Ruth 2:14 And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers: and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.

59 She ate and was satisfied!

60 When you live by Grace instead of by rights, you will be surprised at how content you will be

61 Ruth 2: And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not: 16 And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not. Ruth 2: And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not: 16 And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.

62 By rights she could glean the corners

63 By Grace, grain was pulled from the bundles for her

64 Gods Grace Is So Amazing! Dont Take It For Granted!

65 Ruth 2: So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley. 18 And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed. Ruth 2: So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley. 18 And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.

66 Ruth 2: And her mother in law said unto her, Where hast thou gleaned to day? and where wroughtest thou? blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee. And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought, and said, The man's name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz.

67 She didnt take Grace for granted… SHE WORKED! She didnt take Grace for granted… SHE WORKED!

68 An ephah was 22 liters… Enough to feed both her and Naomi for 10 days An ephah was 22 liters… Enough to feed both her and Naomi for 10 days

69 Ruth 2:20 And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, Blessed be he of the LORD, who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen.

70 Individual would marry a Childless Widow Preserve the dead husbands name He had to be a blood relative Individual would marry a Childless Widow Preserve the dead husbands name He had to be a blood relative He must have the right of authority to redeem He must be able to pay the price He must be willing to redeem He must have the right of authority to redeem He must be able to pay the price He must be willing to redeem KINSMEN REDEEMER LAW Also…

71 This all took place in Bethlehem!

72 Jesus became our blood relative in Bethlehem Listen…

73 Jesus is the only one who has the authority to redeem us Listen…

74 Jesus is the only one who is able to pay the price Listen… (Sinless, Spotless Lamb of God)

75 Jesus was willing to pay the price! Listen… Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

76 Jesus was willing to pay the price! Listen… Philippians 2:5-8 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

77 Jesus was willing to pay the price! Listen… Philippians 2:5-8 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

78 Jesus was willing to pay the price! Listen… Philippians 2:5-8 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

79 Jesus was willing to pay the price! Listen… Philippians 2:5-8 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

81 Ruth 2: And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest. 22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field. 23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law. Ruth 2: And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest. 22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field. 23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.

82 Boaz and Ruth were oblivious to Gods secret plans for their lives

83 Had this not happened, you would have had to call off the Wise Men and there would have been no Baby Jesus born in Bethlehem

84 Boaz and Ruth is a love story and my relationship with Jesus Christ is a love story

85 How foolish are we to try to earn Gods approval and forgiveness…

86 Instead of by His Grace and Mercy, freely receiving it and so much more!
