Speaker: Jerry Cisar Gary Haugen of IJM, in his book, The Locust Effect, writes about the devastating effects of lawlessness which is still prevalent in many parts of the world. He documents well “the enormous upside of decent justice systems (even if not perfect) that safeguard the pathway out of poverty for the poor.” The book of Ruth began “when…
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar Do we live redemptively? Or as Paul might put it, Are we living in a manner congruent with the Gospel? Are our lives being transformed into the image of the Redeemer such that we live redemptively? Ruth 4 is a study in contrast between two characters. One is perpetually referred to as a redeemer and has all the optics necessary…
 
Speaker: Peter Stonecipher Ruth 3 is tantalizing in the details which it chooses to include, and maddening in the details which it chooses to leave out! Much like the village gossips in Bethlehem in Ruth’s day, modern readers are often left asking, “What exactly happened at the threshing floor between Boaz and Ruth?” By all appearances, there seems…
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar Our series title, “Ruth: Resurrection, Righteousness, and Redemption,” might seem a bit misleading so far. So far, we’ve focused entirely on the tomb from which Naomi needed to be raised. Put another way, we’ve entirely looked at the Redemption Naomi and Ruth desperately need. In Ruth 2, we begin “the rest of the story.” Enter …
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar Naomi and Ruth have returned to Bethlehem of Judah. The town seems excited, but not Naomi. She gives us a peak into an experience of grief (Ruth 1:19-22). She is evidently bitter. How are we to understand what she says? How well-informed is her theology? What are we to learn? My title for this message is borrowed from C. S. Lew…
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar Dietrich Bonhoeffer begins his discourse about cheap grace vs costly grace: “Cheap grace is the mortal enemy of our church. Our struggle today is for costly grace.” These words are equally true today. The church is filled with cheap grace, which is a cheap substitute for the real thing. In this week’s text, Ruth is a portrait o…

Speaker: Jerry Cisar It has been said that to stop hoping is to stop living and there is certainly truth to that. One author says that “hope is so close to the core of all that makes us human that when we lose hope we lose something of our very selves.” To stop hoping is to accept defeat, to declare the brokenness of the world the winner. Sadly, if…
 
Speaker: Peter Stonecipher Often in Christian circles we talk about God’s Upside-Down Kingdom. By this we typically mean that God’s ways are not our ways, and that the priorities and ethics of God’s kingdom sometimes seem backward to us. As those living in a fallen world, however, we occasionally need the reminder that we are the ones who are upsid…

(4-5) How to live like our Lord stands victorious: - Look to Hi…
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar “It is not so much the case that God has a mission for his church in the world, as that God has a church for his mission in the world. Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission – God’s mission.” (Christopher J. H. Wright, The Mission of God) Did you know that God has a mission? The story of God’s Miss…
 
Series: Standalone Message Speaker: Pastor Andrew Watkins Scripture: John 21:1-23 Big Idea: The Risen Jesus teaches us how to follow Him.

(15-17) 4) C…
 
Speaker: Jerry Cisar In classical music, in particular in the sonata form, there is this final section called the “recapitulation.” We get our word “recap” from recapitulation. Sonatas have themes or movements. You may have a first and second movement. In the recapitulation, regardless of just how much has been built on top of or around the origina…
