Ruth’s Inclusion and Ours
If we possess Christ we possess all the promises in the Word. If not, then we are excluded. Ruth is no longer excluded. She had committed herself to being part of God's people. Boaz acts as the redeemer and acquires Ruth as his wife so that this family is not cut off. They did not deserve this blessing, as we do not deserve a place in the new heaven and new earth. It is only possible because we have a redeemer in Christ. There are indications that something much bigger is going on. From the seed of this family many will be gathered into the kingdom of God.
