God Will Redeem Us

Here is a great thought illustrating the rest we can find in Christ if we trust him a sour redeemer:“Just as Boaz pledges to redeem Ruth, so God has promised to redeem us. In fact, Jesus secured our redemption on the cross. And just as Boaz sent Ruth away with a gift and pledge, so Jesus has sent us his Holy Spirit as a pledge (Eph. 1:14). But just as Ruth awaited final resolution, we still await the day when God will give complete rest”(David Schuman, “The Story of Ruth and the Secret to Rest,”The Gospel Coalition,December 22, 2020, https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/ruth-rest/).
