You will discover that from the time Boaz said to Ruth, “I will do to thee all…”; he literally took it upon himself and began to speak for her. Boaz did everything for her to the point that he got married to her. It was not even his turn to marry her. Boaz said there is somebody closer to you than me. Let’s tell him, if he refuses, I will step in. You know the story, the man refused, and Boaz stepped in. Why? Boaz was rich and Boaz was close to her. So, Ruth was redeemed. Ruth got married to Boaz and they gave birth to Obed. Obed became the father of Jesse, and Jesse became the father of David and down to the lineage of Jesus Christ: our kinsman Redeemer. Jesus is your kinsman Redeemer. When you fall at His feet, He takes over your problems and difficulties. Beloved, Jesus came down and identified with you as a man. So He feels what you feel. And not only that, he willingly laid down his life. Jesus was not killed, He laid down his life. He paid the supreme and ultimate price with His life. You were redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
The book of Galatians 3:13 says ‘Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us”. He has redeemed you. Eph 1:7 says “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace”. You see, we already have it. You have been bought back. How dare you look down on yourself. You are so precious that he paid the supreme price.
