Pastor Mark Ruth 1:16 The life Naomi and Ruth lived in Moab obviously wasn't working. The wisest thing to do was quit while they were ahead, or quit while they still had their head. Ruth amazingly surrendered to a God she knew nothing about, but sensed something about. God can do miraculous things through a surrendered life that quits the old life.
Pastor Mark Brown 1 Samuel 10:6 If you are not happy with who you are or who you are becoming, God can change you into another man (better person). It is all possible by the Spirit of God. People around the globe are trying to be another person than who they are, but will be disappointed in the end if it is not the Spirit of God transforming them into a better person.
Genesis 18:27 When Abraham was interceding for Sodom & Gomorrah he approached with humility and reverence claiming that he was "but dust and ashes" and the Lord heard his cry and was ready to spare the city for 10 righteous souls. How do you view yourself? Time in the altar can transform you into ashes.
