Esther 4:13-14 and God’s Calling on Our Lives

Queen Esther before the King.

Every Christian has a calling on their lives. The Lord, for whatever reason, has chosen to use people to effect his will on earth. When we become Christians we say yes to working with God to accomplish that will. We are given an awe-some privilege to be able to work with the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, to accomplish what he wants in the world.

Esther saw this firsthand. Her cousin, Mordecai, informed her of a terrible development with regards to the Jewish people and then reminded her that God uses everyone:

Don’t think for one minute that, unlike all the other Jews, you’ll come out of this alive simply because you are in the palace. In fact, if you don’t speak up at this very important time, relief and rescue will appear for the Jews from another place, but you and your family will die. But who knows? Maybe it was for a moment like this that you came to be part of he royal family.

God can and will use everyone. John Wesley said it best:

We should every one of us consider, for what end God has put us in the place where we are? And when an opportunity offers of serving God and our generation, we must take care not to let it slip.

What opportunity has God given you to serve him and your generation?
