Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful reminder in the book of Ruth, that no-one is outside Your offer of salvation, and that no matter how far we have strayed away from Your loving arms, You are ready and willing to bring us back into fellowship with Yourself. We praise and thank You that no one is beyond redemption and no matter how far we have strayed You are ready and willing to open Your arms of love to the prodigal. Thank You for Your goodness and grace and pray that many who have wandered far from You would find their hope in Jesus – in Whose name we pray, AMEN.

Thank You Father for the Bible and the wonderful truths that is contains. Thank You for using people like Ruth, to demonstrate such devotion to You, leaving every trace of this world behind in order to seek after the one true and living God. Keep me low at the cross so that I may worship You in humble devotion all the days of my life, and thank You that You loved me so much that the Lord Jesus became my Kinsman-Redeemer and bought me back from slavery to sin into the family of God - to Whom be all praise and glory, AMEN.

Thank You Father for your Word (Jesus the living Word, and the Bible, which is Your written Word), whose pages point to the Man Christ Jesus – our precious Kinsman-Redeemer, risen Saviour and coming Bridegroom. May I learn the many lessons that Your Word teaches and may I grow in grace and fall more in love with the Lord Jesus day by day, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
