Show Notes

I open this episode with a few recorded interviews of friends who I randomly asked questions to test their knowledge on the book of Ruth. Their responses are definitely entertaining! In all, we are really on a journey here at Spirit Life Walk to not just learn about the characters and true stories from the Bible, but to learn about ourselves. To laugh together. To cry together. To grow in Christ together. The wonderful thing is that the Lord wants us to grow up into Him in the first place! He is so gracious and kind to want to include us in His plans. He wants us to learn more about Him so that we don't just offer an ignorant response to life's situations with a "I guess it was God's will". We need to know Him and do the things He says are His preferences. That requires following Him and clinging to Him like Ruth clung to Naomi and desired to go back to Bethlehem with her. Jesus is not a driver with a whip, forcing us into more labor for the Kingdom. He instead draws us to Him through His love and His mercy. If we cling to Him, what seems difficult, unending or plain impossible will always brighten up if we look to Jesus, our True Hope and source during times of endurance! God bless you!
