Today's Reading: Ruth 4:13-22; 1 Chronicles 2:9-55; 1 Chronicles 4:1-23; 1 Samuel 1: 1-8
Ruth is such a lovely picture of this kinsman redeemer. She was in great need, unable to rescue herself and her mother-in-law, Naomi, quietly and respectfully directed her to request that Boaz cover her with his protection, redeem her, and make her his wife. It is a beautiful picture because it is also a picture of what Jesus has done for us.
We too were in great need, we too had a debt that we could never repay, we too would lose our lives if our kinsman redeemer had not stepped in to pay our debt, to rescue us, to save us. He covers us with His protection and has made us His bride and has blessed us forever. In this Easter week I want to focus in remembrance on my Redeemer-on our most amazing Brother who came as our Kinsman Redeemer.
