Sermon series: Building Lasting Relationships - Ruth

A series of eight model sermons from the book of Ruth by Jerry Gifford.

The book of Ruth is a fascinating tale of romance, intrigue, loss, disobedience, and ultimately of faith. Ruth's and Naomi's journey from heartbreak to hope offers an Old Testament glimpse into God's redemptive power as He transforms a bitter widow and a former idolater into a family legacy that would eventually lead to the birth of Christ, Himself.

Along the way we can learn much from Ruth about what God wants from our relationships as we walk with HIm in faith. Your congregation will appreicate this series of eight model sermons from Ruth on building lasting relationships.
