This week Pastor Jake starts a new series titled “Hold Fast” a study through the Book of Ruth. In Part 1: “Hold Fast to the King” we will explore what happens when we find ourselves in a season of famine. We need to watch out for the temptation of trying to get fed apart from God’s place and God’s people, because when we do it can lead to much loss and bitter disappointment. However, when we do find ourselves lost along the way, the good news is that Jesus will go to great lengths to bring us back home again.
This week Pastor Jake continues a study through the Book of Ruth with Part 2 “Hold Fast to God’s People.” In today’s sermon we will explore three characters, Naomi and her two daughters-in-law Ruth and Orpah, and what we can learn from them about friendship. Enjoy!
In this week’s sermon, Pastor Jake continues a study through the Book of Ruth with Part 3 “Hold Fast to Grace.” We explore the story of Ruth gleaning in the fields of Boaz, and learn how it is a reflection of God’s grace in our lives, as His providence, protection, and provision are made available to us.
In this week’s sermon, Pastor Jake continues a study through the Book of Ruth with Part 4 “Hold Fast to Rest.” We explore the story of Naomi instructing Ruth to seek the covering of Boaz. We learn that the way to receive the rest Jesus has for us is to walk in humility by listening, obedience, vulnerability, boldness, and trusting.
In this week’s sermon, Pastor Jake continues a study through the Book of Ruth with Part 5 “Hold Fast to the Promise.” Today we are exploring the first several verses of Ruth chapter 4, as Boaz gets to work redeeming Naomi’s land and arranging to take Ruth as his bride. In this passage we see a picture of Jesus’ love for us, and how He works to redeem our lives in the midst of a broken world.
In this week’s sermon, Pastor Jake finishes the study through the Book of Ruth with Part 6 “Hold Fast to the Redeemer.” As we finish this series, we see the importance of holding on to our redeemer with open hands. We also take a look at the redemption found in the story of Job, to better grasp the unfailing and unending hope and grace that our redeemer gives to us even in our most difficult times if we allow Him.
