Grace for you today !
Exceptional Grace seeks you !
So, she gleaned in the field until evening, and beat out what she had gleaned, and it was about an ephah of barley. Then she took it up and went into the city, and her mother-in-law saw what she had gleaned. So, she brought out and gave to her what she had kept back after she had been satisfied.
Today one of the most startling facts in the above verse is unfolded
Ruth ‘Beat out’ what she had gleaned. To ‘Beat out’ means to thresh the grain on a hard surface to separate the grain from the chaff. In this verse a symbol of the first & last letter of Hebrew alphabets – ‘Aleph Tav’ is seen that signifies Jesus. This means that It took beating on the body of Christ to bring the untold blessings upon Ruth’s life.
But what had Ruth done to receive grace in her life?
You receive everlasting righteousness of God as a free gift by Faith through grace the second you believe in our Lord Jesus (ref Rom 3:22).
a) In this case Ruth received Naomi’s God as her God without knowing & without seeing.
b) She chose to receive grace and not her reward.
Reward is the outcome of one’s work whereas grace is the outcome of our Lord’s love for us. She clung to grace which is super abounding, rather than reward which is limited.
Dear Beloved just confess that you are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and receive His super abounding Grace like Ruth did.
