Are We Patriotic Enough?

Not long ago I watched a mini-series about the life and times of George Washington. Though it is a fact that President Washington was most certainly patriotic, I wonder if there was more to it than that. He stepped up to the plate in a desperate time for our country. Those days were a time in which the wrong leadership would have ended in a disaster for our fledgling democracy. In the book of Ester we read of a time for the Hebrews when their future hung in the balance. Mordecai advised Ester to risk her life in order to save the Hebrews. "When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, 13 he sent back this answer: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Je

What Do You Have to Say for Yourself?

Perhaps, like me, when you were young and we sometimes made a mistake by disobeying our parents, one would say, "What do you have to say for yourself?" Well, I had a variety of things to say depending upon the circumstances. I might say, "The dog ate it," or some other intelligent thing like that. Actually, I was usually caught off guard by the question. There is a great day coming and sooner than most of us plan, where we will be asked a similar question about how we spent the life that God gave us to use glorifying and honoring Him. When judgement day comes, we won't be able to say anything but the truth concerning our time spent here on earth. Every day is a gift from God to be used for H

Why Is My Lord Weeping?

And Hazael said, “Why is my lord weeping?” He answered, “Because I know the evil that you will do to the children of Israel: Their strongholds you will set on fire, and their young men you will kill with the sword; and you will dash their children, and rip open their women with child.” (2 Kings 8:12) This was a strange event in the life of Elisha. The king of Syria was sick, and he sent a messenger named Hazael to ask Elisha if the king would recover. When Hazael asked, the prophet told the messenger to go back and tell the king he would recover – but he would really die. When Elisha said this strange thing, he began to weep. You see, God gave Elisha insight into more than the health of the

Sunday is Father's Day

Well, it's here again; Father's Day! I've been looking for something to post on the sign out front. There are many witty saying one could put there. Most of them are meant to evoke a smile or a chuckle, but there are some sign sayings which point out a truth. I like the latter. Truth is what we are all about here at Russell Springs Christian Church. Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," (John 14:6). It's all about Jesus. Do when you think about Jesus, Do you think of Him, do you think of Him as your heavenly Father, or do you think of Him as the Son, or only as your Savior? Jesus said, "I and the Father are one." This was a bold

D Day!

Today is our remembrance of D Day! How can we ever forget what these thousands of brave young men did for us that June 6th day on the beaches of Normandy? They began the drive to push the Nazis out or Europe. It was the beginning of the end for the 1,000 year Reich. Adolph Hitler would only live months from that day, not years.Yet I fear many of our young are not remembering these events. They aren't being taught the truth of our historical heritage of freedom at a price. Freedom is not free. I watched a documentary about six lads between ages 14-16 who had been sent by death train to the most terrible Auschwitz concentration camp. On the day of their arrival they hurriedly scribbled notes
