Ruth: A Refuge From the Storm - Ruth 2

November 11th, 2012

Adam Taylor speaks on 'Ruth: A Refuge From the Storm' (Ruth 2) at Morning Church on the 11th of November 2012.

Sermon outline:

  • Remembrance Day: A bittersweet day
  • Boaz: The man of God
  • Ruth: A woman who has found favour
    • God's merciful providence
  • Why has Ruth found favour?
    • Not on the basis of merit
    • Because she sought refuge under God's wings
  • God: His fingerprints on our lives
    • Seeking refuge in God and loving others
    • The message of the gospel
    • Naomi's theology of God's sovereignty

Providence: God's hand over human actions and history, bringing creation to its divinely determined goal. So the world and humanity is not ruled by chance or fate but by God who is working out His gracious purposes.
