“The Four Ancient Paths: God and Us”

March 19, 2017 Speaker: Pastor Bob Burris Series: Shock & Awe: The Year of the Bible 2017

Passage: Ruth 1:1–4:22

March 19th, 2017

Key Passage: Ruth 1-4

G. K. Chesterton "Jesus promised his disciples three things - that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble."


A. Four Eternal Paths of God

  1. God has the climate controlled; He has chance controlled; He has all events in His power. He is wholly and completely sovereign over everything.
  2. He won’t let His promises die, His grace is like the waves of the ocean; He works for good even in judgment.
  3. He loves to intervene when His people take risks for the Kingdom.
  4. Often His hand is unseen. He is immortal, invisible, silent as light – sometimes.

B. Four Ancient Paths for Us

  1. A persistent loyal love, Ruth 1:16-17.
  2. Integrity when it is easy to make excuses, Ruth 2:4-5, 11-12.
  3. Generosity and an inconvenient hospitality, Ruth 2:12-23.
  4. Courage and boldness to take action, Ruth 3:1-4:12.
