This is the third sermon in the Advent series “Mothers of Jesus,” preached on Sunday, December 23, 2018. God enters our stories in the midst of their brokenness, and brings peace and wholeness and beauty where we least expect it. Read Ruth’s story!
When we get stuck in our lives, God rescues us in His love, and He uses faithful, obedient people to do it. We must have the courage and vulnerability to let them — and God — in to our stuckness.
God brings Tamar, an outsider and a woman, into Judah’s family to bring wholeness and reconciliation and peace. And through Tamar’s courage, generations later, God brings his Son, Jesus Christ, into the dark and broken world that He loves so much.
