Imago Dei: A Women’s Value - Sermon Notes ALCC Granbury, Texas

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Romans 5:10 For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

Ruth 1:16-19 But Ruth said: “Entreat me not to leave you … For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.” 18 When she saw that she was determined to go with her, she stopped speaking to her. 19 Now the two of them went until they came to Bethlehem. And it happened, when they had come to Bethlehem…

Ruth 2:1 Now Naomi had a relative on her husband’s side, a man of wealth … whose name was Boaz.

Ruth 3:1-4 One day Ruth’s mother-in-law Naomi said to her, “My daughter, I must find a home for you, where you will be well provided for... 3 Wash, put on perfume, and get dressed in your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let Boaz know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking. 4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.”

Ruth 3:5-11 “I will do whatever you say,” Ruth answered. 6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do. … 9 “Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer.”… 11 And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.

Ruth 3:15-17 Also he said, “Bring the shawl that is on you and hold it.” And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her. … 17 And added, ‘Do not go empty-handed to your mother-in-law.’”

Zechariah 3:3-5 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel. 4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.” 5 … So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.

Romans 4:3-6 … Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness. 4 Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. 5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is imputed for righteousness, 6 just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works.
