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?
