The People Rejoice



Ruth 3:9-4:12

The Story
After the deal was made with the near kinsman and redemption was accomplished, the people gathered there began to rejoice :
  • They elevated Ruth's standing. They compared Ruth with Leah and Rachel, the wives of Jacob who gave birth to the twelve sons of Jacob, and in effect, all of Israel.
  • They praised Boaz for what he had done in the life of Ruth.
Lessons
After sinners come to Jesus for redemption, the people rejoice :
  • They elevate their standing. They are transformed from sinners into saints. They are no longer outcasts from God, but now God has called them His sons (1 John 3:1-2).
  • They praise the LORD Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of their faith, who has paid the ultimate price for their redemption.
Remember the people, they elevated Ruth's standing and praise Boaz for her redemption.
