The Motivation Of Love, Part 4 of 4 (Finding Where You Fit)
At crucial times, great leaders arise, often from simple roots. They’re seen at the turning points of history, and they are often called upon to make momentous choices. In this message we meet one such leader, a woman named Esther.
As Haman plans to have all of the Jews killed, Mordecai tells Esther that she must go to the king and intercede for her people. At first, she refuses, but then Mordecai gives her three lessons that we all would do well to learn.- First: If we want to accomplish great things for God, we all have to work together. All of us are involved.- Second: We’ve been called in this hour, in this community to represent God. We’ve been divinely appointed to be together.- Third: We’re divinely appointed to take risks, even extreme risks, for God.When Esther understood this, she asked her people to pray and fast for her—then she went to the king to intercede for her people.
