Stay committed to God's will.
One was a foreigner and a peasant. The other, a reluctant queen married to a man she hardly knew. But their stories have one thing in common: a remarkable faith committed to doing God's will.
For both Ruth and Esther, God used stressful circumstances to bring about His eternal purposes. Ruth's commitment to the God of Naomi affected every generation to come, as she became an ancestor of King David and, more important, Jesus Christ. Esther's obedience led to the preservation of her people at a moment in history when all seemed lost.
These stories will make you contemplate, Would I trust God enough to do what they did? As you read, ask yourself how God wants to use your faithful commitment. And in so doing, allow beloved author and Bible teacher Warren W. Wiersbe to help you be prepared and committed to doing God's will no matter what the cost.
