Sermon Scripture: Esther 8-10 The Big Idea: When we stand strong, God will deliver on his promises. When we turn our heart away from him we end up in exile. Esther gets a reversal of fortune from the king. God reminds people of their upcoming reversal of home. Israel gets a reversal from victims to victors. The Persians and Medes feared the reversal of position. When we stand strong in Christ, no reversal is necessary.
Esther 5-7 What are we willing to give up for our pride? Haman lived his life for himself. The king lived impulsively. Esther lived courageously and sacrificially for others. Mordecai lived for the promise of God. How then will you live? Will you live sacrificially, courageously, impulsively, selfishly, or will you live for God’s promise?
Sermon Scripture: Esther 4 Sermon Big Idea: Life brings difficult situations. When they come, how will we respond? When in distress, go humbly before the Lord. When in distress, look where God is already working. When in distress, ask the hard questions. When in distress, do the hard thing. The easy way out usually isn’t a way out at all.

(v. 15-18) A plot was revealed that will play a part in the larger plot. (v.…
Esther 1 Sermon Big Idea: Pride and ignorance are not lost on the rich and powerful Ahasuerus wanted to display his power (v. 1-4) Ahasuerus wanted to buy loyalty (v. 5-9) Ahasuerus wanted to feed his pride (v. 10-11) Ahasuerus wanted to order honor (v. 12-22) Journeying with Jesus starts with your own royal rescue. And that means undoing the one thing that can be undone.
Psalm 46 God is still our proven help. (v. 1-3) God still sits on His throne. (v. 4-7) Be still and know that He is GOD! (v. 8-11) The world around you may feel like it is crumbling apart, but take hope in the proven power of our almighty God.
