Series: God’s Heart in Ruth
Text: Ruth 4:1-12
Preacher: Brent McCrory
Why is it God’s will for us to sacrifice for others? Because when we sacrifice for others we are imitating Him…and imitating Him is one of the things we are called to do (cf. Ephesians 5:1). Yet far too often in our culture it seems people worship a God who never disagrees with them…never calls them out of their comfort zone…never calls them to account for anything. This, my friends, is not worshiping the God of the Bible, it is worship of an idol. And we know where idol worshipers go, don’t we? Well…listen in to find out (you may be surprised).
Simply stated, there is no way around it – God’s Heart Desires for Us to Sacrifice for Others. Also simply stated this is a good thing…because then (once again) we are imitating Him.
Note: a special thanks to Melissa McCrory for sharing a bit about the sacrifice of another on her behalf in the past and the tremendous impact it had on her life.
