Read Esther 5 & 6

  • What is happening in the narrative?
  • Where do you see God at work?
  • Where do you see evidence of faith in Esther?
  • As you’ve gone through the week, where have you seen God at work around you and through you?

Read Esther 3 & 4

  • What is happening in the narrative?
  • Where do you see God at work here?
  • In the dialogue between Esther and Mordecai at the end of Esther 4, what can you glean about each of their characters?
  • What clues do we have about their faith?

Read Esther 2

  • What’s happening in the narrative?
  • How do you feel about what’s happening in this chapter – so different than our culture!
  • Do you see God at work anywhere?

Esther has known pain – she’s an orphan being raised by her cousin and then uprooted to the King’s palace. Pain, it seems to me, can soften us to see the Lord at work, or harden us as we get angry. 

  • How have you responded to pain in your life to this point?

Monday (11/18/19)

Keith shared yesterday about how God has prepared a good work for us to do once we are sealed into His family as a son or daughter. It’s so cool to me to think of God specifically designing me for a task that can serve Him and the Kingdom.

This week we are going to read through the book of Esther. This book is filled with specific tasks for specific people and I think we will enjoy learning together. Each day we will look at similar questions and hopefully see God moving and working throughout this story.

I know that we watch a lot of The Bible Project videos, but they do such a great job! Way better than me typing the background. So here it is! 

Read Esther 1

  • What’s happening in the narrative?
  • Where do you see God working?

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help your eyes be open to seeing God at work around you.

Sunday (11/17/19)

Read Philemon

KNOW (what does the text say about God?)
BE (What does the text say about us?)
DO (what is the text calling me to do?)

Take time today to think through those questions from this passage.

KNOW:

BE:

DO:

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to transform your heart into one that moves towards others in reconciliation. You may be the one that has been wronged, or you may be the one that has wronged someone. God desires unity and love amongst us.
