This week, we transitioned from the Judges period of Israel’s history to the beginning of the kings. These king-centric narratives begin with the amazing story of Ruth, where we see God’s kindness to a faithful foreigner through Boaz. The book of Ruth previews the coming story by providing us a genealogy that tells us that she is the great-grandmother of Israel’s greatest king ever, David.
After 5 weeks of rediscovering God’s Big Story, we finally reach the point of exploring where you and I fit in. And, it turns out we play a HUGE role in His Story! But, for some reason, we have forgotten how huge it is. What happened? What is our role in His Story, and why is it important to us today?
We’re ten weeks in, and have just wrapped cup the Torah (the first five books of the Bible.) Let’s pause and take a moment to reflect and regroup.
I am so glad you have chosen to be part of a life group. We are building something together here… A community that is so much more than the sum of it’s parts. We are practicing part of the Great Commandment here, and being transformed into what Jesus wants us to become.
