Esther 10

Bell's Commentary on the BibleBell's Commentary

Verses 1-3

  1. TABLE MANNERS (10:1-3)
    1. 3 things to learn from Mordecai’s story:
      1. God uses unexpected people at unexpected times.
        1. God moves David from being a shepherd of a few sheep to king of His nation.
        2. God takes Moses, an 80 yr. w/a criminal record, & uses him to pull off the Exodus.
        3. He uses a Harlot to hide his spies (Rahab); a rebel prophet to spearhead an evangelsitc crusade in Ninevah (Jonah).
        4. He used a Pharisee & murderer to pen most of the N.T. (Paul)
        5. He used a deserter to kick off the early church (Peter).
      2. God uses people with an other centered heart.
        1. Contrast Haman vs. Mordecai.
        2. When the Lord gives you Affluence or Influence, use it to the Glory of God, and for the weak, the doubting, the tempted, & the comfortless.
      3. God uses those who seek the good of others, & who speaks Shalom to others.
    2. “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God!” (Corrie Ten Boom)
    3. So, God preserved the Jewish nation & we would have a Bible & a Savior.
