Esther Agrees to Help the Jews
12 And they told Mordecai what Esther had said. 13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king's palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.”[c] 17 Mordecai then went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him.
- You can live and die under God’s judgment, or you can live and die under God’s Covenant.
- Jesus is the true and greater Esther.
- If you live under God’s judgement, you will perish. If you live under God’s Covenant, you will grow into blessedness.
- The Gospel shapes you to see each day from the perspective of “For such a time as this.”
