Love Connection

It is always fun to hear stories about how people met for
the first time, especially if there is a “Love Connection.”
Even when we know the story, it is still fun to hear how
our grandparents or parents met, some times those stories
are passed from one generation to the next.

The Old Testament book of Ruth is not only a story of a
“Love Connection,” it is the story about the family of a
famous celebrity which would be a special report in
today's world of celebrities and tabloid TV.

Over the years I have heard a number of pastors speak
about the dramatic scene where Ruth vows “till death do
us part” Which is kind of strange when you think about it,
since she is making the vow to her mother-in-law. Getting
back to our “Love Connection,” Ruth has been out scrounging
in the field all day for left over grain, and this is how she
meets Mr. Right.

At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground.
She exclaimed,"Why have I found such favor in your eyes
that you notice me--a foreigner?"

Boaz replied, "I've been told all about what you have done
for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband--how
you left your father and mother and your homeland and came
to live with a people you did not know before. May the LORD
repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded
by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings
you have come to take refuge." Ruth 2:10-12 (NIV)

For some reason, I really identify with Ruth in this passage,
because even though I know that God truly loves me, I still have
those moments when I wonder why God loves me so much?
In marriage and in life we move on, we leave our families, and
yet God’s love for us remains the same. More than just an ancient
text recording the first encounter between King David’s great-grand
parents, I hear the echo of Christ's love for each of us in what Boaz
says to Ruth.

May the LORD bless you for all that you do in His service.
May you be richly rewarded by the LORD in whom you take refuge.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
