Overview Of The Old Testament: Ruth

Ruth meets Boaz. It seemed like a ‘chance’ meeting – ‘she happened to come…’  (Ruth 2:3). It was more than that. God was at work. Ruth had committed herself to the Lord (Ruth 1:16-17). She was being guided by the Lord (Psalm 37:3-5; Proverbs 3:5-6). We read about Ruth. We learn about Jesus Christ. When you come to Him, He says, ‘Do not go to glean in another field…’: ‘There is salvation in no one else’ (Ruth 2:8; Acts 4:12). Ruth was covered by the ‘garment’ of Boaz, her ‘kinsman-redeemer’ (Ruth 3:9). Jesus is our Kinsman-Redeemer. He has become one of us. In Him, we ‘rejoice’: ‘He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness’ (Isaiah 61:10). ‘Our righteous acts are like filthy rags’. Bring your ‘robes’ to Christ and let them be ‘washed’, ‘made white in the blood of the Lamb’ (Isaiah 64:6; Revelation 7:14).
