Harrisonburg First Church of the Nazarene
Old As New: Esther & The Call of God
Esther was given an invitation, a call to be a part of something bigger than herself. Although God's ways would have prevailed without her, she chose to be obedient and partake in the salvation of her people. Welcome and thanks for joining us as we begin our new series, "Old As New."

YOU SEE
The story of Esther is not about the plans and purposes of God hinging on the decision of one girl. It is about the future of that girl hinging on her decision to choose to be a part of the plans and purposes of God.
“FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS”
There is no assertion why Esther has been appointed queen, but it seems Mordecai is implying that it could be because God is in the details.
God's Word also says it this way:
YOU HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE
Will you say yes to the the call or will you try to avoid it and seek temporary comfort instead?
Esther’s call to assemble and fast accompanies a similar cry for divine relief.
THE CALL OF GOD:
To trade transient comfort for a transformative cross.
To choose to take up our cross and say YES to God’s call changes us:
-It gives us a purpose
-It gives us hope
-It transforms us
In the end, Esther was obedient. Because she was, the Jews were saved!
What or who is on the other side of your choice today?
