Telling the Truth for Women

Daring to Dare

September 23, 2015
We all like to put our roots down and feel secure. We don't like change; we don't like being pushed into situations where we'll risk anything. But sometimes God calls us to do this!

God calls us to be believers, like Esther and Mordecai, who care enough about the souls of others that we risk our own comfort, and sometimes our own lives, in order to fight for the lives of those around us.

Jill teaches us how to be believers who care enough to dare - believers with courage to do the right thing even when we're afraid! Based on Esther 4-5, this is the 5th message in Jill's 6-message series, God in the Shadows.

Upholding the "Christian" label in a world like ours is vulnerable - it’s risky. If we live rightly in our wrong world, sooner or later we will find ourselves in conflict or threatened. When Esther's people, the Jews, were threatened, she had to choose whether or not she was going to stand up for them against the persecution of Haman. Would she keep her identity as a Jew a secret and save herself? Or would she stick her neck out and try to save the Jews? Jill encourages us to be like Esther, and to be unashamed of the Gospel message in our witness. Based on Esther 3, this is the 4th message in Jill's 6-message series, God in the Shadows.

Have you experienced a darkening sky in your life? When you find yourself there, do you shine brighter for it, or flicker out? Esther's life seemed to be a downward spiral of difficulties. But she continued to shine brightly for God in the unbelieving kingdom of which she was now queen. As Jill takes you through the amazing story of Esther, a simple Jewish girl made queen, you will see that you, too, can be empowered by God to keep shining his light, even in an ever darkening sky. Based on Esther 2, this is the 3rd message in Jill's 6-message series, God in the Shadows.

Sometimes God's will isn't what we would have picked out for ourselves. It isn't what we want. And it's difficult to accept. Esther's life didn't turn out how she wanted it to. She found herself separated from her family and married to the unbelieving King of Persia. Through these trials, God made Esther into a Supernova, shining even more brightly in the hardships. But before she could get there, she had to die to her own dreams and her own plan. Are you willing to do the same? Based on Esther 2, this is the 2nd message in Jill's 6-message, God in the Shadows.

If God called you to a difficult task in a difficult place, would you shine light into that place? Would you, like Esther, be a star for God? Esther is a great example of someone who faced seemingly impossible circumstances. She was forced to marry a very powerful, very worldly man: the King of Persia. While not many of us can relate to such a circumstance as Esther had, we can learn from her faith and obedience. You are right in center stage of where God wants you to be and what God wants you to do in your life. Will you be obedient? Based on Esther 1, this is the 1st message in Jill's 6-message series, God in the Shadows.
