Topic: The Recap (Esther’s Glory): Part 8 (Esther 8)
Bible Reading: Esther 8
Good evening ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing this evening! It is the middle of the week already! Can you believe it? We are already in our second week of the second month of 2021! God has been good! The beginning of each post is dedicated to giving thanks to God and recognizing His goodness in our lives! Why? Well, without God who are we? Everything we are and have; it is all thanks to Him! We must always give thanks to Him! Giving thanks to God and recognizing His goodness, is the least thing we can do!
Well, let us get into today’s message! Today’s lessons are picked up from Esther 8. To read the full messages explored in today’s post, kindly check out the Esther’s Glory- available on our blog (Sammie’s Daily Dose) page!
Please don’t forget to like, comment and share this post and all other post you engage with! God richly bless you!
Lesson 1: Your life (and testimony) is a way to bring people to Christ!
As Christians, we have one main task, which is to go out a make disciples of all nations! There are various ways (through the help of the Holy Spirt), by which we may bring people to the kingdom! You can go out and preach the Gospel to people, you can use your platform to write (like this blog) or share the Gospel. Equally, you can use your lifestyle and your way-of-living to bring people to God!
There are many who parade around and call themselves Christians! These are not the people this message is talking about! We are focused on people who a truly dedicated to God and obeying His will! Those people live their lives full of Christ! They have dedicated themselves to God and wholeheartedly follow His ways and commands! Those people’s lives lead many to Christ! Why? Well, they have let go of everything and let Christ in as the center! Everything they do is different from the norm! Everyone in their environment will notice this- and want to be like them! Do you live a Christ-like life? Is your life an example to others? Can you say your life can lead someone to Christ?
Lesson 2: When God leads you, your life is full of light!
From Esther 8, we see that as children of God (who diligently seek Him) we get to enjoy some “perks.” God rewards His children for all that they do for Him! Just like our earthly parents rewards (with complements or gifts) when we were good children! Our Heavenly Father does the same! Serving God is never in vain! Choosing God is never in vain! Sacrificing for God is never in vain! The gratification may not be immediate or how our flesh may want it! But when God rewards; it is greater and better than any other reward we may have received!
God rewards us with LIGHT! This means joy, love, favor, peace, gladness, the list goes on and on! Is this the life we want to live? Well, I know everyone yearns for this! Well, to enjoy such quality life; all you have to do is choose God! You have to be ready to sacrifice yourself and put God first before anything in this world! You must selflessly and “selfishly” live for God! Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful evening and let God inspire you!
I thank you for my life. I thank you for giving me another beautiful day. I ask that you guide me and protect me. I pray that I will choose you in every situation that I face. And that my life will be a testimony and an example to many that I have Christ living in me. Thank you, Lord, for sending your son to die on the cross and wipe my sins away. I lift your name high for you are Alpha and Omega. Amen!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
1. Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
2. Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out!
