I. THE REDEEMER (vv. 14-15) 

 II. THE REDEEMED (v. 16-17)


 I) If you have been delivered from your sin and despair through the greater Redeemer, Christ Jesus, you have been blessed immensely!

 II) If Jesus is your redeemer, you are loved deeply!

 III) Jesus is a nourishing redeemer!

 IV) Jesus is also restoring redeemer!

V) Now the name of this generous, loving, nourishing, and restoring Redeemer is renowned not only in Israel but to the ends of the earth!

VI) And finally, The Lord God brings glory and praises to His name through the greater Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ!


1. How did the women respond in verses 14-15 and what do we learn here?

2. Read verses 16-17. How has Naomi’s life changed especially when compared to Ruth 1:20-21? Who were the human actors in this story of redemption? Who was the ultimate actor—that is to ask, what do we learn concerning the LORD’s secret and loving providence in the book of Ruth? What was the child named Obed and who would be his grandson?

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
