For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”
Mordecai gave Queen Esther a challenge. If you do not take this opportunity to save your people, you and your relatives are going to perish. The Jewish lady was ready to scarify her life in a bid to save millions of Jews from being slaughtered in a possible genocide, that would have been as bad as the Holocaust. In such an act of love for her own people, Esther walked in the likeness of Jesus the Messiah. He did not only lay down His life for His own people, but for the redemption of the whole Human race. Jesus is greater then Esther. He rose from the dead, and we are called to walk in the power of His resurrection.
