Series: Living The Character Of Christ

Today’s Message: Esther—Displaying the Courage of Christ

Esther 1:1-10:5

 

And the king loved Esther more than any of the other young women. He was so

delighted with her that he set the royal crown on her head and declared her queen

instead of Vashti. Esther continued to keep her family background and nationality a

secret. She was still following Mordecai’s directions, just as she did when she lived in his

home. Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because

you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed.

Queen Esther replied, “If I have found favor with the king, and if it pleases the king to

grant my request, I ask that my life and the lives of my people will be spared. Then

Queen Esther wrote another letter putting the queen’s full authority behind Mordecai’s

letter to establish the Festival of Purim.
