Esther: The Divine Moment

Esther- The Divine Moment sermon slides

In the book of Esther chapters 3-4, we learn that the anti-Semite Haman has the king's endorsement to wipe out the Jewish population. Mordecai sends word to his daughter, Queen Esther. He asks her to intercede on behalf of her people by approaching her husband, the cruel King Xerxes. Esther determines to use her royal position "for such a time as this," knowing this risky, dangerous move could result in her own death. As Christians, we should consider our own positions and opportunities in response to God's call. Does He want to use us "for such a time as this?" Are we the answer to our own prayers? It is better to act than not to act if our regrets in not responding to God's call will lead us to ask, "What if?"

From Series: "Esther: The Divine Behind the Scenes"

In this four-week sermon series in the Old Testament book of Esther, we will explore the providence of God. In this book God is so behind the scenes that he isn’t even named! God hides himself in the background to teach us about his providence in our everyday lives so that we learn to see God’s fingerprints working behind the scenes through the good, the bad and the ugly.
