The Reward of Redemption

I teach an early morning religion class for teenagers. We are currently studying the Old Testament of the Bible. One day while the students were reading to themselves in Ruth chapters 1 & 2, I pondered how I am like Ruth—coming unto Christ, and Boaz is a type or symbol of Christ—giving me redemption.

Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.

The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

Ruth 2:10-12



While we do not serve for the sake of a reward, the reward of redemption is one that is gloriously felt here in life and in the hereafter and available to all who will accept it.
