March 7: Purim

 – For this reason.

Purpose, one of the main themes of Purim reminds us that God has a purpose for Israel, for the church and for all of His creation.

The turning point of the entire drama hinges on Esther’s response to Mordecai’s challenge to consider the purpose for her life.  Esther’s response resulted in the salvation of her people


Esther 4:13-16

Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.  For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”
