TOPIC: LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF MORDECAI (4)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Esther 9:18-30
MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 5:8. Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of my enemies, make thy way straight before my face.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: Do all that you can do to satisfy God and your conscience and thereafter, you will see the salvation of the Lord.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: May the Lord God arise and scatter all your enemies, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 12 – 14; Acts 28; Romans 1
Another lesson that we can learn today from Mordecai is that he was not a selfish man. The unexpected blessings and honour from God were not only meant to elevate Mordecai but they were meant for him to continue God’s missions for peace in the kingdom and reliance on God. By doing what he knew to be God’s calling on him, Mordecai was blessed by God and was placed in a position to continue God’s mission on a greater scale.
Mordecai didn’t do what he did for Esther, the king, and his people because he was hoping to be placed in a royal position; he did what he did because it was right in the eyes of God, and he knew that even if his actions caused his death, he would have eternal life with his Father. Besides that, Mordecai embodied several attributes we can find in ourselves: compassion for others, standing up for our beliefs and what is right, using the wisdom of God in our lives and being selfless, putting others first. This reminds us that we all could be called by God, like Mordecai, to be leaders in faith and example for others.
Beloved, Mordecai also established the feast of Purim, a two-day festival celebrating how God had rescued them from Haman’s wicked-minded plot to completely destroy the Jewish race. It is a sort of thanksgiving service unto God for all His righteousness in their lives.
How many times has God done something great through us and we failed to acknowledge and appreciate Him? Mordecai was an embodiment of humility and someone who respected God for who He is and for what He is doing. God would want us to toe the same path to become example to those around us, especially those that do not know Him. The only way we can win such people is to be like small God in their situation.
