Wherever you go, I will go

1
Wherever you go, I will go,
Wherever you dwell, I will dwell;
Your people will be my people,
And your God will be my God.
Wherever you go, I will go,
Wherever you dwell, I will dwell;
Your people will be my people,
And your God will be my God.
Wherever you die, I will die;
And there will I be buried.
Jehovah do to me, and more as well,
If anything but death parts me from you.
Jehovah do to me, and more as well,
If anything but death parts me from you.

Amen. Ruth wasn't mistaken by choosing God's kingdom. May we become of todays Ruth married to Christ. Bringing God out of eternity into time mingled. O Lord Jesus extend your cloak upon.

Ruth, a Moabitess, was one who excluded from God and His people. Yet she eventuality became one of the most important persons in the bringing forth of King David (and of Christ). Because of her love for Naomi, Ruth chose to “glue” herself to Naomi. As a result she entered the land promised by God to His people, the good land typifying the all-inclusive Christ as the alotted portion of every believer in Christ. This shows us that God’s move requires our cooperation to love Him to the uttermost and to bind ourselves to Him wherever He may lead. By such love we can enter in into the full enjoyment of the all inclusive Christ, for the issuing forth of His kingdom.

We enjoyed the story of Ruth and Boaz at our children's meeting, and I was being reminded of this hymn. May this be my prayer too, follow the Lord till the end of my journey.

Lead me where You want me be go. Keep me where You want me to stay.

Lord Jesus, I still love You.

This is a very poignant tune. The story is a great example of faithful love. However let us not forget that Ruth is a young non-Jewish widow insisting that no matter what happens to her and widowed mother-in-law Naomi she will accompany her back to Jewish territory, as it happens to Bethlehem in Judah. This is the antithesis of stories we read about jealous and envious mothers-in-law and their daughters-in-law. It's ironic that it is often played at weddings. It is not about conjugal love. It's about faithfulness within the extended family.

The story of Ruth and Naomi taught me a great lesson of love. Where You go I will go and where You dwell I will dwell.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.

Amen
