God uses Boaz to provide rest and redemption to Ruth, a vulnerable woman from a despised nation. God wants to use His people as instruments of righteousness and redemption in a crooked generation, just as Boaz and Ruth were during the period of the judges.
With other religions, man gives to God seeking to be paid back. The God of the Bible needs nothing, and is always giving. Therefore, we are always receiving and always have reason to be grateful.
Preaching has always been one of the primary ways God speaks to His people. God commands that His Word be preached. God's will is for us to experience Him in preaching so that people are born again, sanctifed, and strengthened to persevere in the faith.
