Inspiring, encouraging, and equipping you every MWF throughout each study session...

The Cost of Discipleship

All this week we have studied the sons of Zebedee, John, and James, who God used mightily for His glory. In today’s passage, we learn of their earthly end. John was exiled to the island of Patmos to spend the remainder of his earthly life alone in isolation without...

Servant Leadership

Sometimes I read the Bible like I’m watching a movie. I want the good guy to win, and I’m secretly hoping that Jesus will suddenly burst forth and put the bad guys in their place. This is what the people of Jesus’s day wanted – and, quite frankly, expected – their...

Week 2 – Following Christ, No Matter the Cost

"Following Jesus is more than nodding a head, raising a hand, signing a card, or repeating a prayer - though someone coming to Christ can do any of those. Following Jesus is not returning to life as usual, the only difference being that we’re now going to Heaven....

Faith That Makes You Bold

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13, ESV) Think of that last phrase… “And they recognized that they had been with...

When Your Faith is Little…

“What does it mean to walk by faith? It means to obey God’s Word in spite of the feelings within us, the circumstances around us, and the consequences before us.” - Warren Wiersbe   The heat of the day was fading as the sun began to set. She grabbed my hand and...

(Week 1) God Gave You Your Personality For A Greater Purpose

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved shows and movies about time travel. I love thinking about what it would have been like to be one of the thousands of people in the crowd when Jesus fed the 5,000 and heard Him speak. I love envisioning the scene with all the...

SOLD OUT Introduction

Many can name the cast of their favorite TV show or the full roster of their favorite team. But few Christians know the names of all twelve of Jesus’s disciples. These are the twelve: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and...

A Different Kind of Happily Ever After

We have come to the end of Ruth, but instead of ending the story with Ruth living happily ever after with Boaz, we end with a genealogy. If we are honest we'll admit that most of us don’t like reading biblical genealogies. We often skim over them or skip them all...

Life is hard. It’s complicated. It’s messy.

Life is hard. It's complicated. It's messy.   I have a friend who was unexpectedly, prematurely widowed. A friend who is an alcoholic but won't admit it. Several friends fighting cancer in their thirties. A friend in the throes of an affair. A friend who's been...

Week 4: Investing in a Legacy that Lasts

Oh, don’t you just love how Boaz is a man of his word? Right after Ruth heads back to Naomi with a shawl full of barley - and I’m sure a heart filled with hope - Boaz wastes no time and travels into town, just like he said he would. Boaz is ready to make good on his...

Doing Right in a Tempting World…

"[The book of] Ruth is a portrait of beautiful, noble manhood and womanhood. In a day when movies and television and advertising and the Internet portray masculinity and femininity in the lowest ways, we are in great need of stories that elevate the magnificent...

Ruth Was a Proverbs 31 Woman…

Can I tell you a secret? Ruth Chapter 3 has always made me a little nervous. I mean, am I the only one who cringes at the thought of Ruth going to the threshing floor that night and following Naomi's orders? Ahhh, talk about awkward! My heart begins to beat faster,...

Week 3: A Daring Proposal

  Good morning and welcome to week 3 of our Ruth study. Can you believe that we are now halfway done?! This study is flying by, you guys! We begin this week in chapter 3 and it is guessed that a couple of weeks have gone by between the end of chapter 2 and the...

There’s No Such Thing As Luck!

I used to believe in “good luck” - that events and opportunities in my life happened by chance and some people are just more “lucky” than others. Then in college, my roommate challenged me one day and said, “Angela, that isn’t random luck. That’s God.” And you know...

Sheltered Under His Wings

This weekend, I rolled down my window at a red light and tried to speak God’s kindness to a homeless pregnant woman who was panhandling for money. I felt the crushing pain of her desperation in her bitter response. I can’t stop thinking about her. As I offered her...

Week 2: The Sovereign God Who Goes Before Us

"So she set out and gleaned in the field after the reapers, and she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the clan of Elimelich." - Ruth 2:3 If you came into this study expecting only a love story, you know by now that the story of...

Pleasant to Bitter

It seems impossible to have hope when you are filled with pain and loss and your dreams have been shattered. Although it is difficult to believe that God is near, His sovereignty never sleeps. When our pain is the deepest and our doubt the greatest, God remains with...

The Depth of Loyal Love…

I am currently living in the land of teenagers, and within that privileged territory I get to engage in some lively conversation around the dinner table each night. Shallow topics can range anywhere from food (and the fact that they're always hungry!) to the latest...
