RUTH, A DEVOTED DAUGHTER-IN-LAW

Bible Giants Of Faith – Episode 4

ruth

We started this series by discussing the great men and their marvelous feats in the bible. Men who showed great faith in God and were thus rewarded with uncommon blessings. So far we’ve been able to go through the lives of three different men (Abraham, Moses, and David).

The great deeds recorded in the bible were not achieved by men alone, women also had their own superb share of these acts. In this episode, we are going to discuss the life of Ruth.

The book Bible Giants of Faith discusses this great woman (Ruth), known for her loyalty and devotion.

The fourth chapter of the book “Bible Giants of Faith” relates that two Moabite women, Ruth and Orpah, married the two sons of Naomi after her husband, Elimelech died. But unfortunately, tragedy struck and Naomi’s two sons died.

After this, Naomi decided to return to Israel. She set out for Bethlehem in the company of her two daughters-in-law. But at a point on the journey, she urged her two daughters-in-law to return to their people for the possibility of starting a new life. Mahlon returned to Moab, but Ruth refused to turn back.

Ruth said to Naomi,

“Do not urge me to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people will be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord do the same to me, and more also, if anything but death separates me from you” (Ruth 1:1-17).

Such loyalty! Even when she had no reason to continue with her, she pledged her life to Naomi. She arrived in Israel with Naomi; took care of Naomi in her old age, and later remarried a man named Boaz based on Naomi’s recommendation.

Ruth later gave birth to a boy named Obed, who also became the grandfather of King David, the great ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Can you see how loyalty and devotion turned a lowly woman from an unknown village to an ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ?

People who claim to love God should prove it with practical actions.

We should not only be Christians through words, but we must complement our words with actions of faith. We must be ready to go out of our way for God.

Even when the grass does not look green, we should still consider it a matter of importance to meet God’s standard.

I hope we all learned a lesson from this episode?

Continue with us in the next episode as we unveil more great deeds from the giants of old.

MOSES; A BIBLE GIANT

Bible Giants Of Faith – Episode 2

moses

 

In our previous post, we discussed one of the giants of faith in the Bible (Abraham). In this episode, we shall discuss another faith giant as portrayed in the second chapter of the book, Bible Giants of Faith.

Moses, a man reputed as the meekest on earth, was the man who led the Israelites out of the land of captivity.

Moses was born at a time where King Pharaoh was on a killing spree of Hebrew male children, in a bid to weaken the Hebrew’s stronghold.

But the boy, Moses survived because of his mother’s wisdom. He escaped death, grew up in Egypt and even enjoyed some royal benefits.

The book, Bible Giants of Faith shows us an incident where Moses killed an Egyptian boy for abusing a Hebrew boy. This made him run away from Egypt, fearing that Pharaoh might kill him. He went on to become a shepherd in the land of Midian.

Not too long, God came calling him from the wilderness, telling him to return to Egypt in order to lead His people out of bondage.

But Moses remembered what made him run away from Egypt. He gave God so many excuses in a bid to avoid going back to Egypt. He even told God that he was a stammerer as if God didn’t know this.

However, God insisted that Moses was the man for the job. Therefore, Moses obeyed. He returned to Egypt and confronted King Pharaoh, who refused to let go of the Hebrews.

The Freedom of The Bond

God caused the Egyptians to experience some plagues which include the death of all Egyptians’ firstborn. These events forced Pharaoh to surrender to God. He opened his border and released the Hebrews. However, the brutal king Pharaoh soon changed his mind and pursued the Israelites to the edge of the Red Sea.

The second chapter of the book, Bible Giants of Faith shows us how God instructed Moses to point his rod at the sea, and the sea parted. All the Israelites successfully walked on dry land in the middle of the Red Sea.

The stubborn king Pharaoh led his soldiers in pursuit of the Israelites to the middle of the Red Sea. God instructed Moses again to point his rod to the sea to release the water after the Israelites had escaped to the dry land.

The Red Sea closed up on all the Egyptians, and they all perished with their mad king.

After the Red Sea experience, Moses led the Israelites in the wilderness en route to the Promised Land. During his journey to the promised land, Moses performed many miracles through the empowerment of God. He made manna (free food) rain down from heaven. He struck a rock and freshwater gushed out when the Israelites were thirsty. He also crafted the Ten Commandments.

Moses obeyed God and trust in His word without fearing for his life. This is the same way all Christians must trust God’s words.

If God said it, then we must believe it!

Moses believed every word that God told him, and he was willing to face death for the sake of obeying God. This is the same way God wants us to obey Him and believe His words.

ABRAHAM; A FAITH GIANT

Bible Giants Of Faith – Episode 1

abraham

The Bible tells us about some great men who have lived before us. Those we can call supermen, because of the type of mighty deeds they wrought. One of such men is Abraham, the friend of God.

The book Bible Giants of Faith, in its first chapter, relates to us the life of Abraham and his relationship with God.

Truly, Abraham was the friend of God. But he didn’t get to that stage by chance. At the time when he was 75 years old, God promised him that He would make him the father of nations.

Imagine, a man without a son received a promise that he would father nations. At 75, for that matter! He didn’t see how this was going to be possible due to his advancing age.

This is just one of the many ‘almost-impossible’ promises and instructions he received from God.

At a time, God appeared to him and asked him to leave his land for another land that He would show him, with a promise of a blessing.

Abraham believed God’s words and left his native land with his wife, Sarah, and his nephew, Lot.

Despite all these promises and instructions, things were not always well with Abraham.

He was also not seeing the promise of a blessing coming to pass in his life. The worst of Abraham’s problems was that he did not have a child.

He was a very old man, and Sarah, his wife, was old and past the childbearing stage.

In the book Bible Giants of Faith, we see that despite all the problems that the man Abraham faced, he never doubted God.

He continued to live with the trust that God would not fail him and would keep his promises.

Not too long, the promises of God started manifesting in his life.

God fulfilled His promise of a son to Abraham when he was one hundred years old, and Sarah, his wife, was ninety years old.

But then God came again with His test. He tested Abraham’s faith after the birth of Isaac; God asked him to sacrifice his trueborn heir, Isaac. Imagine that!

Abraham- Tested and Trusted!

After all the years Abraham had waited before he could have a son, God asked him to sacrifice the son.

Despite not knowing that it was a test, Abraham obeyed, without questioning God, and he passed the test.

faith

For Abraham’s numerous obedience, not just that God promised him innumerable blessings, they all came to pass.

He told him that just as it was impossible for anyone to be able to count the stars in the sky, so would it be impossible for anyone to count his descendants.

This is exactly the way God wants us to have total faith in Him. And as we do this, His numerous promises will be ours to enjoy.
