Transcript

  • 1. GOD‟s Hand in our Risk Ruth 3:1-18
  • 2. RUTH 3:1-18
  • 3. “Then Naomi, her mother-in-law, said to her, „My daughter, should I not seek rest for you, that it may be well with you? Is not Boaz our relative with whose young women you were? See, he is winnowing barley tonight at the threshing floor. Wash, therefore, and anoint yourself, and put on your cloak, and go down to the threshing floor, but do not make yourself known to the man until he has finished eating and drinking. But, when he lies down, observe the place where he lies. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down, and he will tell you what to do.‟And she replied, „All that you say, I will do.‟
  • 4. “So she went down the threshing floor and did just as her mother-in-law had commanded her, and, when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of grain. And she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and lay down. “At midnight the man was startled and turned over, and behold, a woman lay at his feet. He said, „Who are you?‟ and she answered, „I am Ruth, your servant. Spread your wings over your servant, for you are a redeemer.‟And he said, „May you blessed by the Lord, my daughter. You have made this last kindness greater than the first in that you have not gone after young men, whether poor or rich. And now, my daughter, do not fear.
  • 5. I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman. And now it is true that I am a redeemer, yet there is a redeemer nearer than I. Remain tonight, and in the morning, if he will redeem you, good. Let him do it. But, if he is not willing to redeem you, then as the Lord lives, I will redeem you. Lie down until the morning.‟ “So she lay at his feet until the morning, but arose before one could recognize another. And he said, „Let it not be known that the woman came to the threshing floor.‟And he said, „Bring the garment you are wearing and hold it out.‟ So she held it, and he measured out six measures of barley and put it on her.
  • 6. Then she went into the city. And when she came to her mother-in-law she said, „How did you fare, my daughter?‟ And she told her all that the man had done for her, saying, „These six measures of barley he gave to me, for he said to me, „You must not go back empty-handed to your mother-in- law.‟‟ She replied, „Wait, my daughter, until you learn how the matter turns out, for the man will not rest, but will settle the matter today.‟”
  • 7. THREE OPTIONS for Ruth in order to get Boaz as her husband.
  • 8. WAY OF SCRIPTURE
  • 9. THE MOABITE WAY, also known as the WORLD WAY.
  • 10. “PULLING A RUTH.”
  • 11. We gonna call it. It‟s not dating or courtship. We‟ll call it “dourting;”
  • 12. Naomi prayed she‟d beget a husband in Ruth 1:9. She was thinking it would be a Moabite. They‟re gonna go after big bad brother Boaz, is what they‟re gonna do. And her counsel is very risky.
  • 13. RUTH 3:1 “Then Naomi, her mother-in- law, said to her, „My daughter, should I not seek rest for you that it may be well with you?‟”
  • 14. Verse 2 Is not Boaz, with whose servant girls you have been, a kinsman of ours? Tonight he will be winnowing barley on the threshing floor.(NIV)
  • 15. Verse 3 Wash and perfume yourself, and put on your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don't let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking.(NIV)
  • 16. Verse 4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do."(NIV)
  • 17. Verse 5 "I will do whatever you say," Ruth answered.(NIV)
  • 18. Verse 6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do.(NIV)
  • 19. Verse 7 When Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went over to lie down at the far end of the grain pile. Ruth approached quietly, uncovered his feet and lay down.(NIV)
  • 20. Verse 8 In the middle of the night something startled the man, and he turned and discovered a woman lying at his feet.(NIV)
  • 21. Verse 9 "Who are you?" he asked. "I am your servant Ruth," she said. "Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer."(NIV)
  • 22. Ruth 2:12 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."(NIV)
  • 23. It‟s a sin to have sex outside of marriage.
  • 24. That holy outlet is the man loves Jesus, the woman loves Jesus, they love each other, they get married, and then they have all of their pleasure and enjoyment. They read Song of Solomon and they make it sing again. That‟s our position.
  • 25. Her desires are good, and her outlet for them is holy and sanctified. She wants to be his wife. She‟s not asking to have anything inappropriate before the wedding, but she is giving him incentive to hustle up.
  • 26. Verse 10 "The LORD bless you, my daughter," he replied. "This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor.(NIV)
  • 27. He‟s talking about the Lord. “You have made this last kindness greater than the first in that you have not gone after young men, rich or poor.” He may not have pursued her, not „cause he wasn‟t interested, but because she was a widow, maybe just coming out of her season of mourning. She‟s an employee; he doesn‟t want to pressure her. He‟s a little older, she‟s a little younger.
  • 28. He‟s very humble.
  • 29. He‟s not the best looking dude. But here‟s what he has: a job, literacy. He‟s a Christian. He loves God. He‟s faithful. He‟s good to people and he‟s gonna be a faithful provider for his family. He‟s gonna be a good husband, a good father, a good grandfather. But he looks at her and says, “You could have had any one of those really good looking guys. I‟m not one of those good looking guys.”
  • 30. Ladies, sometimes a man doesn‟t pursue you not because he‟s not interested, but because he doesn‟t think that you would be interested in him.
  • 31. Verse 11 And now, my daughter, don't be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character.(NIV)
  • 32. “I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman, and it is true that I am a redeemer.”
  • 33. In calling her a worthy woman he is echoing what was said of him in chapter 2, verse 1, that he was a worthy man, worthy of respect and praise and emulation. He‟s a good man, and now she is a woman of exceedingly good character.
  • 34. So what looks like a mismatch – rich, poor, Moabite, Hebrew, employer, employee – is in fact, in God‟s eyes, an equal match because they both love him with all their heart, and they love each other. And they have outstanding character. And that‟s why they‟re a good fit. It looks good, doesn‟t it? Yes. She‟s declared her heart! Now they can get married!
  • 35. No. Every good love story has a drama. Every good love story has an obstacle to the love being satisfied and fulfilled. Right?
  • 36. If you wanna be with a woman, there‟s always gonna be something difficult for you to overcome to prove your love to her and to demonstrate it to her family.
  • 37. Verse 12 Although it is true that I am near of kin, there is a kinsman-redeemer nearer than I.(NIV)
  • 38. He has absolutely no legal obligation to Ruth whatsoever. He owes her nothing. The legalists, the moralists, they‟ll say, “He is here fulfilling his obligations according to the law.” No, he‟s not. He‟s not marrying her to obey the law because the law speaks nothing of this situation, gives no commands to Boaz. So why does he marry her? He loves her. It‟s about love.
  • 39. BOAZ IS LIKE JESUS, and RUTH IS LIKE THE CHURCH, and Jesus loves us, not because he‟s obligated to, but because he‟s gracious and he‟s kind, and he‟s affectionate, and he‟s dependable. And it‟s all of grace, not of law, not of legality, not of obligation.
  • 40. Verse 13 Stay here for the night, and in the morning if he wants to redeem, good; let him redeem. But if he is not willing, as surely as the LORD lives I will do it. Lie here until morning."(NIV)
  • 41. “Remain tonight, and in the morning, if he will redeem you, good. Let him do it. But if he is not willing to redeem you, then as the Lord lives, I will redeem you. Lay down „til the morning.”
  • 42. “We‟re not gonna break the law. We‟re not gonna sleep together. God doesn‟t bless sin. I want to marry you. I want to be with you. So, you sleep here,” – and this is not inappropriate. It‟s miles into town where Naomi is and their home. It‟s the dark of night.
  • 43. This is not physical. It‟s not inappropriate. And then you can go home when it‟s safe, and I will get that guy out of the way and we‟ll figure out how we can make this happen.”
  • 44. But Boaz is here obeying the law and also the scriptures, so that he can remain in a place that God blesses, knowing that God only blesses those who obey him. God doesn‟t bless sin. If he sleeps with her or breaks the law, God‟s not gonna bless that. He trusts the providential hand of God to work in spite of these very difficult circumstances, „cause he really does love her, and he really does want to marry her, and she came to him and said, “I really love you. Do you want to marry me?” and he said, “Yes, I desperately want to marry you. And I will figure it out.”
  • 45. Now let me say this, ladies. Don‟t be too easy to get.
  • 46. He will figure it out. And in so doing, he will prove that he is trustworthy, dependable. He is industrious. He is clever in the right way, and that he desperately wants to be with you. I always tell the guys there are two kinds of women. A woman you can live with, and a woman you can‟t live without. Every man wants to marry the woman he can‟t live without. By God‟s grace I married the woman I can‟t live without. I am just drawn to her in a way that I, I can‟t help myself. Every woman wants that. Every woman deserves that.
