Midweek Message 3-7-2018

I believe God has given all of us a purpose for being here on this earth.  We are here for a reason.  As I have said so many times,  we are not here just to take up space.  There is a little book in the Old Testament named after it’s main character, Esther.  Esther is a young Jewish women living in Babylon.  Her ancestors were the Jews taken from Judah when the Babylonian army came in and defeated them.  God has a plan and a purpose for Esther’s life. God will make it possible for Esther to be chosen queen by King Xerxes who does not know that she is a Jew.  God will use her to go to the king to ask him to spare her people’s lives.  The king will grant her request.  One of my favorite verses in the Bible is where Esther’s uncle Mordecai tells her , ” And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this.”  (Esther 4: 14).    And so we ask God to reveal to us why we are here?  God,  What is your purpose for my life?   We never know how God will use us until we seek His purpose for our lives.  One purpose God has for all of us is to “Keep spurring one another on toward love and good deeds.”  (Hebrews 10: 24)  God bless you all and see you Sunday.  Louis
