Series: Better Together

Pastor A: Pastor Joe Meyer

Pastor B: Pastor Ben Johnson

Message Summary:

The story of Ruth and Naomi is really a tender story of what loyal-family-love looks like. Naomi lost everything and therefore begged Ruth to leave her and find a better life…but Ruth stuck with Naomi and loved her through the hard times. The Greek word for this kind of love is “storge” and it refers to the kind of love that exists in a familial relationship. Even greater than Ruth’s love for Naomi is the tender and loyal love that our Heavenly Father has for us. Jesus promised that He would never leave us or forsake us no matter what we go through or what our attitude is in those moments. The wonderful truth about the church is, while we have our “loyal” Heavenly Father always by our side, we also have one another as well. We are “family” in and through the Lord Jesus Christ and our loyalty extends to one another no matter what.
