Ruth 1: Hope in Darkness

Ruth 1: Hope in Darkness

 

 

 

The book of Ruth contains one of the most incredible stories of God’s masterful redemptive work in the midst of the lowest points of human despair. Not only does God’s redemption reach into the individual suffering of Ruth and Naomi in this book, but God also providentially works through this hopeless situation to bring about a great king for Israel and relieve the suffering of the nation. But not even the author of Ruth understood that through Ruth’s line God was going to bring about redemption for all of mankind. In this first chapter of Ruth, we will see how God brings hope in our darkest hour, at times through unexpected means.
