Sermons on Difficult Times
As we have been studying through the Book of Revelation we have been looking at the major themes through John’s letter. This morning we are moving to look specifically at the letters to the 7 churches in chapters 2 and 3 in Revelation
In this series, we are focusing on what we need to do in order to read, study, and apply Revelation responsibly, we have to look at its original context, intent, and audience to fully understand how it applies to us today.
What do you know about Hagar?
What can we learn from the life of Deborah from the Old Testament?
Looking at chapter 4 of the book of Esther, Gary challenges us to consider who we identify as; with the people of God, or with the world. Esther faces a tough choice in this chapter, how will she respond when her life is threatened and the lives of the entire Jewish people?
As we continue through the Book of Esther we see themes that can be reflected in the world around us. Gary looks at chapter 3 and the history of the issues of the Jewish people, and how that can be mirrored in the disdain often reserved for God’s people throughout history.
The Book of Esther is unique in the Bible in that God isn’t actually mentioned once! There are no prayers, God doesn’t speak, and we get to see the dramatic story unfold. Throughout the story, we see messiness, scandal, sex, and drama, and yet… we see the Lord at work whether it looks obvious at the time or not.
