Passage: Ruth 4:13-17
Speaker: Steve Hands
God’s eternal purposes are not derailed by desperate times. Instead, the Lord often uses those desperate times to shape our dependence upon Himself and sculpt his own trajectories. As I look back at this past year of Wellspring, I celebrate how the Lord has worked. In our histories, both Blanchard and Living Water faced desperate times. Before the birth of Living Water there was a time that the birth of this church would be still born. Blanchard itself was struggling with long slow decline that faced many similarly sized churches in our area. However, as in Ruth 4:13–17,through unconventional unions, the Lord brings unexpected life to continue his unending purposes. This Sunday I want to celebrate what God has done this past year through the lens of Ruth.
