God in Unexpected Risks (Ruth 3)

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, we continued our series on Ruth called “Unexpected” by looking at Ruth, chapter 3. My message was entitled “God in Unexpected Risks.” The main point of my message is that as we step out with selfless risks, God works in unexpected ways.

You can listen to my message online at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter. I’ve included the outline for the message below:

A Risky Plan (Ruth 3:1-5)

  • Naomi’s plan

The risk of doing nothing
The risk of doing something
The risk of unknown elements

  • Ruth’s loyal obedience

A Risky Request (Ruth 3:6-9)

  • Boaz at the threshing floor
  • Ruth implement Naomi’s plan under cover of darkness
  • Ruth takes Naomi’s plan a step further

  • Boaz’s unexpected joy
  • A wrinkle in the plan
  • Boaz and the ‘guardian-redeemer’
  • Boaz’s caution
