How to Save a Nation

"And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?" (Esther 5:14)

Everything has its moment. And in every man or woman's life there are critical moments when they will decide if they are going to rise up and fulfill their God-given destiny.

Esther was a young, Jewish girl who had been miraculously lifted up to be the Queen in the Medio-Persian empire (the largest in the world in its time).

Through a strange plot line, a wicked man in the kingdom had decided to destroy the entire Jewish population. It's amazing how Satan continues to try to orchestrate the genocide of God’s chosen people. Haman, a Satanic pawn, is in a long line of executioners.

Esther has a choice: she can rise up and fulfill her destiny as a deliverer to the Jews, or keep silent and try to save her own skin.

Challenged by a godly mentor and encourager, she steps into the moment, willing to give her life on behalf of her people. And, God uses her mightily.

HEROES

... are what we call men and women like this. We have a special category for this kind of sacrificial service to others.

But you don't have to save a whole nation. You can be the instrument to bring life and deliverance to your family, your neighborhood, your workplace, your community. Maybe even your nation or one life that matters to God.

It just takes a cause bigger than yourself and the willingness to die.

And soon—maybe now—it’s your time.

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer also said. He is not only perfect in holiness (He must deal with sin as it comes) but also flawless in kindness. If He were a man you related to, you would find Him always doing the right, gracious, benevolent thing. You would be stunned by His interest in you; awed by His acts of kindness. Overwhelmed by His unceasing generosity.

Has the kingdom of God come near you? You’ve heard of Christ, seen someone in whom Christ dwelled, passed by a church on the corner, or have a Bible that a grandmother gave you years ago. Perhaps you even sit in a church every Sunday, but you have never surrendered to Christ and entered His kingdom. You never acknowledged your need and turned to Christ in faith to save you. You merely let the kingdom merely “come near.”
