What strikes you as most fascinating in the book of Ruth?
How many ways does the book of Ruth point to Christ? Through characters, theme ect.)
Naomi’s evangelism doesn’t seem like the type we would usually teach in an evangelism strategy class. But why was it so effective?
Is this a translatable strategy for us?
Why would we characterize Naomi’s relationship with Ruth as one of “sacrificial love”?
Have you ever been shown the kind of sacrificial love that Naomi showed to Ruth?
If we are to show sacrificial love to non-believers, how can we ensure it is genuine and not a manufactured strategy to produce a desired outcome?
God was powerfully at work throughout this book yet there are no miraculous deeds or signs performed. This is probably true in your life as well. God is doing 10,000 things that we have no idea of. Do you find this to be a difficult truth to grasp hold of in your own life?
How has the book of Ruth encouraged this truth for you?
Jesus perfectly fulfilled the role of Redeemer that we see in the book of Ruth through Boaz. And we fulfilled the role of people needing redemption as those who are helpless, destitute and unable to do anything about our own condition. What will this truth produce in you for the week ahead of us?
