Celebrate Your Victory In Christ

Key Verse

“Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which had come unto them” (Esther 9:26)

TEXT — Esther 9:20-28


An anonymous Christian writer once said, “Celebrate all victories God gave you… over sin, death, iniquity, sickness, famine and life’s problems. Our life must not only constitute requests and asking but also incorporate the celebration of what the Lord has accomplished in us”.

Today’s Bible passage focuses on a feast commemorating the victory of Jews over their enemies in the ancient Persian Empire. The “Purim”, which means “lots” or “Feast of Lots” is usually a boisterous holiday celebrated on the 14th day of Adar (March). Purim is deservedly celebrated because of the victory of Esther, Mordecai and all the Jews over Haman, the Agagite who sought to eliminate them. However, the Lord used Queen Esther to work on the heart of King Ahasuerus. Haman’s plot was discovered and he was hanged. His ten sons too were hanged. After that, the Jews had rest from their enemies. To commemorate this victory, they decided to set aside a feast to show the world that God is supreme.

Just as the Jews, till date, celebrate Purim, we, as believers, should celebrate our victory in Jesus Christ daily. Have you ever imagined what life would have been if we had been left to our mortal enemy (Satan) in the world of sin and death? For this reason, God sent His Son to deliver us from the power of sin, darkness and eternal damnation.

The more we celebrate the victories the Lord has given us, the more confidence we have that He will still give us victory over whatever battles may confront us in the future. This sense of appreciation builds up our faith and deepens our love for the Lord. Also, it is a bold testimony before unbelievers of what our God can do for them if they too will put their trust in Him.

Thought for the day

The more we celebrate with gratitude to God, the more He undertakes for us.
