We are here introduced to one of the principal characters of the book of Ruth — Boaz.
It is through him that Ruth enters upon a prosperous and secure life and becomes one of the progenitors of the Lord Jesus.
I. AT THE BEGINNING OF HER NEW LIFE IN JUDAH, A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH BOAZ BEGINS
So it is with every true believer.
1. It is in his fields that Ruth finds sustenance.
2. It is under his eye that she finds protection. 2:8-9.
3. It is through intimate union with him that she finds everlasting honour. Had not Ruth married Boaz, we would even know her name today. It is union with Christ that will bring us to honour. “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light,” 1 Peter 2:9. Deut 26:19; 1 Sam 2:7-9.
