But Ruth said, ‘Do not urge me to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people will be my people, and your God, my God.’ RUTH 1:16 (AMP)

Ruth’s journey began after she buried her husband. Ruth followed her mother-in-law, Naomi, despite Naomi’s repeated attempts to have her return to her family (vv11–13). Unlike her sister-in-law, Ruth clung to Naomi. She turned away from the easier path to walk the path of love and faith. It’s this love and determination that gave Ruth a hope for the future, even when things appeared hopeless for Naomi.

Redemption is always possible, even against all odds. Ruth had no reason to believe she deserved anything. She had faith that God would provide, and God performed a miracle act to redeem Ruth.

He took a hurting outcast and healed her, supplied for her, and provided her with an amazing love in Boaz.

In your life, redemption is possible. God has a plan for you that outweighs where you’ve come from or what you’ve been through. God brought Ruth and Boaz together, and they had a child together. And that child would be in the lineage of Jesus, the Saviour of the world. Ruth, a Moabite, was a part of Christ’s lineage.
