The Gospel in Esther
God’s people in Esther found themselves in the same position we find ourselves since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden.
A decree of death hangs over us from which we cannot deliver ourselves.
Mordecai refused to honor Haman, but we have refused to honor Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives.
Haman was purchasing death with his money, but God used Christ’s death to purchase life.
