Ruth 1:16 But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.
Ruth is a beautiful story. Naomi and her family had gone to Moab during the famine in Bethlehem. When God began to restore blessings to the "House of Bread," Naomi decided to return there. Her husband and her two sons had died in Moab. Ruth was one of her daughters-in-law. Ruth determined to go with Naomi back to Bethlehem. This is a beautiful picture of God's heart toward all who seek Him. He received Ruth, provided bountifully for her and Naomi, even to including Ruth in the lineage of Jesus Christ. Ruth was a "whosoever." Romans 10:13 (a quote from Joel 2:32) tells us, For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (KJV).
The Jews are the Chosen People. They were chosen to bring God's salvation to the world. All the world is chosen to receive that salvation. John's Revelation reveals those who are saved before the throne of God (7:9, 10): After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." John 3:16, probably the most known scripture in all the world, shows God's heart and hope for all. Jesus Himself delivered the message to us. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (KJV)."
Would you be a Naomi and point someone toward God's "House of Bread?"
