Ruth’s Twists and Turns

The book of Ruth is a perfect story; a story made in heaven. It offers the reader in four concise chapters the intrigue and suspense of the gospel. Far from a mechanical demonstration of God’s works, the gospel is a relational and covenantal display of God’s works in and for us. We do not live in a mechanical world. We live in a relational world where we are constantly confronted with twists and turns and where we are constantly being forced to adjust to a new situation. When we expect the story to be over God is going to reveal Himself again to be faithful. And when we suspect the waterfall of grace to have stopped pouring this is when God surprises us with more…endlessly more.

  1. Can you write more about this subject? You really should be writing for a living. I just wanted to say thanks for this great read. I have been a professional in this field since about 1978. I was talking to my mom on Thursday when I heard about this. This site was already running when I turned on my browser.
