Grace for you today !
Exceptional Grace seeks you !
“And Boaz answered and said to her, “It has been fully reported to me, all that you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband, and how you have left your father and your mother and the land of your birth, and have come to a people whom you did not know before. The LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.” Then she said, “Let me find favor in your sight, my lord; for you have comforted me, and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservants.””
Ruth 2:11-13 NKJV
The above passage is just marvellous . Ruth demonstrated faith that definitely called for a reward and that is what Boaz blessed her with.
But then , look at her response , “ Let me find favor in your sight, my lord” . She insisted for Grace and grace alone . She quickly admitted that she was not like one of Boaz’s maid servant’s .She knew that she was a foreigner and that being a gentile she would prefer to be treated under the dispensation of Grace – a foreshadow of the Church . She knew that if she would compete with her contemporaries in Israel in keeping the law, she would soon fail on the requirement of the law. However , if she continues in Grace , Grace will enable her to keep the requirement more than needed ( “that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” Romans 8:4 )
My beloved , this teaching will take the enlightenment of the Spirit to fully comprehend. I pray that the Lord will throw light on the above passage . Amen 🙏
