Sermon Notes from 28 April 2019

The book of Esther

Your moment is now: Esther 4:13-16

”Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, “Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.” ‘

ESTHER 4:13-16

God is going to accomplish his purpose and nothing is going to stop that—it is time to act with BOLDNESS

Reality 1- God placed Esther in that palace 
— God does not want you to dwell on the past you can’t change 

Reality 2- Esther used her position for God’s glory, not her glory

He who loves his life will lose it

God already knows the context of your life

  • talk to Jesus in your palace
  • take the message of Jesus to places where God isn’t known
