Purim - Remembering God's Faithfulness

The book of Esther records the institution of the annual festival of Purim and keeps alive for later generations the memory of the  great deliverance of the Jewish people.  Through Mordecai and his cousin Hadassah, who became Queen Esther, God manifested His sovereignty, saving His people and fulfilling His judgment of the Amalekites through the demise of evil Haman.

When Mordecai asks Esther how does she know that she was not in her position  for such a time as this, God is speaking to all of us.  Just as God had a plan to save the Jewish people in Babylonia through Mordecai and Esther, he has a plan to reconcile the world to Himself and He has a part for each one of us to fulfill.

Hag Sameach!
