I hope your Sunday evening is relaxing and enjoyable. Tonight we finish the story of Esther. Haman, who tried to kill all the Jews in the empire is dead. The trouble is that his plot was already set in motion through letters instructing people everywhere to kill the Jews on a certain day. So Esther, Mordecai and the king have to figure out what to do. In typical fashion, the king gives Mordecai authority to do whatever seems best. Mordecai issues and order for Jewish self-defense. As it turns out, the Jews are victorious over their enemies and the people are saved, all because God worked through Esther's courage and Mordecai's wisdom. The violence of the story is disturbing, but Esther's courage is still an inspiration. What is your calling "for such a time as this?"
