Ruth And Her Wedding Experience


Ruth 4:13

The Story

Boaz saw his plan completed when Ruth was redeemed and when she became his bride. He paid the price for her because of his love for her and he was magnified as a result (4:11-12).

In spite of her past, Ruth was accepted in Boaz! When she was redeemed, a legal transaction took place (4:1-11). Boaz was the Redeemer and Ruth had been forever redeemed from her past!

Lessons

The LORD Jesus Christ will return for His bride (1 Cor. 15:51-52, 1 The. 4:16-17, Rev. 19:1-9). He will catch His people away and see His plan completed when they are safe with Him in glory! So, if we are saved, we are going home! On that day, He will receive all the praise He is worthy of today!

In Jesus, and through His blood, we are accepted (Eph. 1:6). The Bible reminds us that in spite of what we were, in Jesus we have been forever redeemed (1 Cor. 6:9-11, 1 Pet. 1:18-19). His grace has changed everything for those who trust in Him for salvation (Eph. 2:8-9, 12-18). We have the Lord Himself, seated at the right hand of the Father, ever living to make intercession for us (Heb. 7:25). We have an Advocate in heaven Who bears in His body the marks of the cross (1 John 2:1, Rev. 5:6). In spite of what we were, and still are at times, we are going to stand in Heavenly places by His grace!

Remember Ruth, she was redeemed and she became Boaz's wife.
