Spoke Up for the Welfare

Hello, God has given me something in Esther 10:3 which says,

“Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.”

Spoke up: Mordecai had taken Haman’s place. He was second in rank to King Xerxes. He was held in high esteem by other Jews, for he worked and spoke up for the good of his people. He helped them. He did not let his power go to waste. He used it to help with the welfare of his people.

Christians: Christians have been saved by Christ’s death for us. We are saved from sins. But, unbelievers have not been saved from sins. If you are an unbeliever, then why not come to Christ? He is so loving and king, and He is mighty to save. He is also willing to help you. He gave His own life for you and for me, so if you come to Him, He will save you and love you. He has given His own life for you, so why not accept it? Why not come into God’s family, and be loved by Him? He is the way to heaven, so come to Him, and get out of your pit of sin. It’s like this: We all are walking down the road of life, and suddenly, we come to a fork in the road. The two new roads both appear to lead the same way, but one of them is broad, and wide, and the other one is narrow and steep. There are also two signs by the roads. The one by the narrow road says, “This is The Way, Jesus”. The other one says, “Come here for a life of ease and pleasure”. But, the broad road leads to hell, and the narrow, leads to heaven. We are all on the path of sin, but Jesus died for us, and now, we can come to Him, and be saved.

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Help unbelievers. Others are still in sins. They need help. So, let’s go and give them the message of how our savior died on the cross for us, and rose again on the third day, saving us from sins! Let’s help others to see Christ, and what He has done for us. Let’s help them to take the narrow path. Let’s share the Gospel with others, so that they might come and be saved.

God: God is so good, He is so good that He even gave His own son for us on the cross. He loved us so much, that He actually gave His son for us. Jesus gave His own life for us! Praise Him with all your might. Give thanks to Him with all your soul. He has saved us from sins, and He loves us so much! God has given His son for us, let us praise our creator, and give thanks to Him. Thank You, Lord! He has loved us so much!

Application: How does Esther 10:3 apply to us? Mordecai helped his people, he worked for their good, and he spoke up for their welfare. We are like the people, we were in sins. But, Jesus came, and He worked for our welfare, by giving His life for us on the cross. Now, He speaks to the Father for our welfare, He intercedes for us. Now, Jesus has saved us from sins. He has spoken up for us, and He has given His own life for us!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving us so much. Thank You, Jesus, for working, and giving Your life, for our welfare. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You, and rejoice in You. Please help me to long to be with You. Please help me to grow in You, and be more like You. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Thank You for blessing me so much. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
