Esther Becomes Queen
Bible Text: Esther 2:1-18 | Preacher: Jerry Owen | Series: For Such a Time as This
Esther is a real-life Cinderella, an orphan girl far away from home who marries the greatest king in the world. But true to biblical-historical form, her story is not Disneyfied. Esther enters a harem. Hundreds of women remain in that harem. It’s one thing when Xerxes gets drunk for six months and mistreats his pagan wife, but what do we do when God’s daughter enters into the contest? And wins?! This book teaches us to read the Bible, apply it to our lives, trust the Lord, and be faithful like Esther and Mordecai.
