Teethed bared, biceps bulging, glistening sword raised high while charging forward with the cry of battle; This is the image often conjured in our minds when we think of a warrior. However, without even so much as drawing a sword, mighty Boaz was able to defend a family’s honor and preserve the life of an entire bloodline. Instead of physical power and might, the strength he utilized to accomplish these feats of valor came from within, as did his weapons—meekness (not weakness) and self-sacrifice. Not surprisingly (and quite fittingly), from his bloodline, there sprang another Redeemer who, by means of that same Spiritual strength and artillery, became the greatest Warrior of them all—Jesus Christ.
