Sermon Notes

Ruth 1:6-18 shows us how three ladies responded to their tragic circumstances. Naomi decided to return to the land of promise. Orpah’s departed to go back to the land of Moab. Ruth was determined to remain with Naomi and chose to place her trust in Jehovah. God uses times of trial in our lives to draw us to Himself and to grow us. When we face tragedy in our lives, we must respond with repentance and faith, trusting God to work through the trial for our good and His glory.
