In the days of the judges....

These are the opening words from the book of Ruth. We visited the Faith Presbyterian Church this morning and this was the text for this morning's sermon. It is really a description of days when Israel had judges and not kings. It was a time that men and women were basically to learn the Word of God and be directly under him. They only were given a king when they asked for one. Today, we have a lot of freedom relatively speaking. In order to use their freedom rightly, the children of Israel needed to know and love the law of the LORD. If they did that they could have the LORD as their king. If they did what was right in their own eyes, what followed was chaos. In fact, many did do what was right in their own eyes instead of what was right as told by the Word of God. If we want to live as Christ as our king, we need know and love His Word.
