Bible Reading: Ruth 4 Memory Verse: Ruth 4: 18- 22 This, then, is the family line of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nashon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, Boaz the father of Obed, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David Good morning everyone! Hope you are having a lovely morning. We thank God for life this morning. Today is the 17thepisode of the Ruth Series. Is that not amazing? Just two episodes more for the series to end. We are almost done with the first part of this journey with Christ. Today we would look at another dimension of God’s blessings. Have you ever sat down to wonder about the number Christians in the world? The number of languages praying to God? It is truly amazing several millions of languages are praying every single day. People from different countries, different regions and different tribes serve our God. God blesses each and every single one no matter their ethnicity or race. That’s amazing. Have you ever seen such love? Some people might say that in a family where a couple have adopted children (from different countries) and children of their own; is an example of such kind of love. But that is not always true. In some cases, these children are not treated equally. But with God we are all treated as His sons and daughters. That’s amazing. There are no biases; nothing. Due this, He blesses us all. No matter your height, age, skin colour, language or clothing. He blesses all who diligently walk with Him. This is to show you that God does not bless certain people- the Israelites. He blesses all. In the Bible reading, we see that Ruth is a Moabite, but is blessed by God. This was because she believed in God and diligently followed Him. In the old times, it was believed or known that God blesses only Israelites. Ruth is an example to show that this statement is somewhat false. In the memory verse, we see the lineage of King David. Ruth was blessed to be part of that lineage, to be the great-grandmother of King David. God is so good. If He decides to bless you, no matter what your background is, He will still bless you. In two paragraphs before this, I said that the fact that people believed or knew that God blessed only Israelites was somewhat false. I used the word somewhat because there is some truth to it. In the earthly realms or physically, we are all from different parts of the world. So the statement is false. But we are told that once we accept Christ into our hearts, we become part of a Spiritual Israel. We became spiritual children of Abraham. When we look at the statement this way then it is true. Our God is faithful and blesses all who are faithful to Him. Are you faithful to Him? Are you a part of this spiritual Israel? Do you have Christ in your heart to start receiving some of these blessings? If not, repeat this prayer with all sincerity: Dear Lord, I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and He came to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fil me and cleanse me sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you Lord. Amen. Once you have repeated this prayer, you are a child of God. Heaven is jubilating! We, God’s family, are all jubilating. Welcome to God’s family. God has started changing your heart, your mind and your spirit. Hallelujah! You will start experiencing God’s blessing upon your life. I will encourage you to get a Bible to meditate upon; so that you may know what God’s word. Find a Bible believing church to go to and enjoy this lovely journey with God. As I always say, it is a conscientious decision to choose God every moment of your life. I pray that God will help you choose Him every moment of your life. Hallelujah! For those of us already part of God’s family, now you have learnt two new things. The first being that God blesses all people, no matter their background or present circumstance. Secondly, you have learnt that as children of God, we are part of a spiritual Israel. Praise God! For the last few days, God has constantly told me about the reading of His Word. Please I want to encourage you to spend time meditating on the Bible. All the keys and solutions to everything in the Bible is there. Also so that we would not be swayed by the enemy. This is because the enemy knows scripture but he twists it to suite him. So must read the Word. Amen! Prayer Points: 1. Thank God for this message. 2. Thank God for the stuff He has taught you or reminded you of. 3. Thank God for the Grace and Mercies, He has showered upon you and your family. 4. Ask God to give you strength to choose Him all the time. 5. Give him praise and worship Him. Today’s prayer: Dear God, Thank you for taking me through the night and giving me life this morning. I want to say thank you Lord, for revealing this message to you. I commit my day into your care Oh Lord. Help me to be a blessing to everyone I encounter today. Use me Oh God. Thank you for sending your son to die for my sins. I lift your name high up Oh God, for you are Great and your love endures forever. Amen. Sisters and brothers in Christ, through each message God shows us of how great and mighty His love for us is. He constantly teaches us, reminds us and urges us to be Christ-like disciples on this earth. This God is too good; don’t you think so? - Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you. As we are drawing closer and closer to the end of our first part of our Journey to knowing God, please share your testimony with others so that they too will be blessed. Please give us feedback on how this message (and previous messages) have spoken to you.
