Ruth - Exploring Love In Action

 

Ruth – Exploring love in action

This series in Ruth will last through until November and we will be exploring a number of important topics as we continue to build foundations within the church family for our ongoing outreach to Paulsgrove. Over the weeks we will be looking at:

·         Love – what is it really all about? We hope our lives will be refreshed in a new way by discovering what love in action looks like.

·         The Gospel – We will see what it means to be restored and renewed by God’s love. Redemption, and what it means. We will also look at what it means for us to come alongside people in a redeeming way.

·         Community – This is not simply the people outside we want to reach; community is something we create through love and commitment to people, and in the case of Ruth, an outsider. The love that builds real community we will discover is the love that is found in and through Jesus, it is a demanding and costly love.

·         What it means to be a Godly woman

·         What it means to be a Godly man

·         What  faith look like when it feels God has deserted us.

·         Prayer – and how do we wait for God to act in his time and in his way?

In preparing for this series I have used a number of resources:

Paul Miller – Ruth, Love redefined. This is an excellent study forms the main base of the material and outline we will follow.

David Atkinson – The Message of Ruth                             Tim Chester Ruth – Poverty and plenty

Barry Webb, David Hohne – Famine and Fortune            C J Goslinga – Joshua, Judges, Ruth

Leon Morris – Ruth IVP commentary
