Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 12/15/2013

Sunday’s message in the Ruth – A Christmas Story series was called The Kinsman-Redeemer taken from Ruth 3:1 – 4:10. Here is a brief outline of the message:

The story of a kinsman-redeemer who redeemed his beloved from a desperate situation at great cost to himself.

I. A desperate situation (Ruth 3:1-9)

II. A loving response (Ruth 3:10-18)

III. A costly redemption (Ruth 4:1-10)

Back to the Christmas story:

    1) Our desperate situation (Galatians 3:22-23)
         – prisoners of sin
         – held prisoners by the law

    2) God’s loving response (Galatians 4:4-5)
         – God sent his Son – born of a woman, born under the law
         – Jesus is our Kinsman-Redeemer!

    3) A costly redemption (Mark 10:45)
         – Jesus did not come to be served but to serve
         – Jesus gave his own life as a ransom for many
