When Life Is Hard – Week 4
sermon-banner (Medium)Life is hard ... really hard.  There are times of joy and seasons of happiness, but a thread of difficulty seems to be constantly woven through the fabric of our lives.  What can we do, when the bottom falls out from under us, when nothing seems to go right, when we’re lost and alone and afraid?
 
Welcome to the story of two widows & a farmer in an out-of-the-way village, the story of RUTH, an account of an inconsequential outsider (from a human perspective) whose life turns out to be essential (from God's perspective) in telling HIS COMPLETE STORY. Was her life easy? Not at all. Neither is yours. That's where our learning can begin ...
 

Remembering all that has happened in the story of Ruth so far, Pastor Tim points out (in our final week of this series) the remarkable truth that this short Bible book demonstrates throughout it's pages:  that we, like Ruth, have a Redeemer who bore the cost to save us and love us and guarantee us a hope and a future.

    During our 2nd week in the series, Pastor Tim reminded us how real, close, and personal hard times are, and guided us through what should be a practical and immediate response to the hard times of those around us.  He also walked us through the next chapter in the story of Ruth, showing us that her initiative, integrity, and humble acceptance of assistance made all the difference in her tale.

    During our first week in this series, Pastor Tim walks us through some of the hard times he has seen and endured, and points us to a hope in God that transcends anything that this world has to offer.  We're reminded to remember several things in the midst of heartache, suffering, and pain that make all the difference, in this life and the next.
