Word Encounter with Gary Fishman
God’s Strategic Calling for Your Life
Mordecai asked Esther to put her life on the line for her people, and declared his belief that God had brought her to this place of prominence “for such a time as this.” Join Gary Fishman and the Word Encounter crew as we discuss how God places us strategically where we live, work, fellowship, etc., in order to accomplish His purposes.
When Honor Becomes Idolatry
After these events, King Xerxes honored Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, elevating him and giving him a seat of honor higher than that of all the other nobles. All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor.
Leaders who demand honor are actually setting themselves up as idols. Don’t fall for this type of spiritual abuse, and if you’ve been sucked into it… learn how to get free.
Purim – Special Father’s Day Edition
In the Book of Esther, Esther is a picture of the bride of Christ. She went from an orphan girl to being chosen as queen. In the same way we fatherless but now we are children of God and have Jesus who is King of Kings as our bridegroom. How can the love of God the Father help us overcome brokenness that has resulted from issues with our natural fathers?
