If there is one thing that we learn from the book of Ruth it is this: God is Gracious and always welcomes those who turn to Him. Ruth a young lady from the land of Moab gives up everything to join God's people in Israel. Though the Law demands that she be excluded, God pours His grace upon her and not only provides for her but Ruth is the Great, Great Grandmother of King David. God is a kind, compassionate and gracious God and we see this most clearly through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus offers forgiveness, reconciliation and new life for anyone who places their trust in Him.
