The Eternal Purpose Track \ Understanding the Bride of Christ

9 – Total Devotion

Session Overview

The greatest commandment is: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Known today as the first commandment, this statement clearly reveals that the most important thing in life is to love God fervently with all that is within us. In other words, we are to be totally devoted to Jesus. This session addresses the subject of the betrothed bride maturing in devotion to her Bridegroom King. Drawing from the types and shadows in the book of Ruth, this session illustrates the journey of devotion that is required from living in Moab to being married to Jesus as our Kinsman-Redeemer. During Ruth’s journey from Moab to marriage, Ruth’s heart changes. She makes several important decisions along the way that result in total devotion to her future husband. We, too, can grow in devotion to our future Bridegroom, Jesus. In this session, we discuss how, like Ruth, we can grow in our devotion to Jesus Christ.
