Good Christians Must Obey And Serve God Diligently
(Passage: Esther 4)
Queen Esther must use her influence to save the Jews from Mr. Haman who has vouched to destroy them. Mordecai walked up to Esther and challenged her to use her rare God-given opportunity to save her people. Esther must not fail, Mordecai warned the queen,
“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14).
God’s Wrath Will Come Upon Those Who Disobey Him
Christian must remember to honor God with their positions since he is counting on them. As his trusted servants, we (believers) must do whatever we can in our capacity to satisfy God’s will. We must not disobey him! The Creator will be happy to see that we do not fail him, because he will bless us in return. However, God has replacements for insolent children, he will displace people who dare to disobey him, and replace them with a better choice. Therefore, all Christians must give due honor to God and serve him with their best efforts.
God is all mighty and powerful. Whatever we have and own is his doing and will. We are absolutely nothing without God. We should always be grateful and abide by his rules.Click to tweet
