9. Ruth Summary Verse

September 28, 2020

The book of Ruth gives us a much needed reprieve from the ugliness and ungodliness of the book of Judges. Here we see find a mission theme, as we see that God desires to save all people regardless of skin color or nationality, and we see a reminder that God keeps His promises and works through the unexpected to bring about His plan of salvation for sinners. Our summary verse comes from Ruth 1:16: “But Ruth said: "Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God” (NKJV).
