For in Christ, God is with us.
Foreshadows of the cross
Where is God in all of this?
Reference: The book of Ruth
Naomi: A person who complained to God.
Complaining to the Lord is one of the most faith-filled acts you can ever engage in.
Ruth: A person who commits to others.
How does Ruth’s commitment point ahead to Jesus?
Jesus promises to be with us.
“Lord, it belongs not to my care Whether I die or live: To love and serve Thee is my share, And this Thy grace must give. Christ leads me through no darker rooms Than he went through before; He that unto God’s kingdom comes Must enter by this door. My knowledge of that life is small, The eye of faith is dim; But tis enough that Christ knows all, And I shall be with him”.

Jesus who is our Kinsmen Redeemer.
Jesus is our advocate.
