"A Crown With Purpose" | Powerful Positions

SCRIPTURE: Esther 2:19 – 3:6 

SHOW NOTES: The book of Esther is a real story rooted in the middle of palace life in ancient Persia. This story is filled with intrigue, power, and selfish ambition. Esther has been named the Queen of Persia. She has not revealed to anyone that she is Jewish, just as her uncle, Mordecai, had instructed her. He has been appointed to a government position and while sitting at the king’s gate, Mordecai overhears a plot to kill the king. He reports this to Queen Esther and after investigation, the two eunuchs are hanged.

The king now promotes a man named Haman to the second highest position in the court and everyone is commanded to bow before him. However, Mordecai would not bow to another person, and this was reported to Haman. How do we act toward other people when we are promoted or when they are promoted? 

“Haman sought to destroy all the Jews, the people of Mordecai, throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus.” But there’s history here. We must go back to King Saul, hundreds of years before, to an act of disobedience
