“He Was A Jew”

Key Verse

“Now it came to pass, when they spake daily unto him, and he hearkened not unto them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai’s matters would stand: for he had told them that he was a Jew.” Esther 3:4

Text — Esther 3:1-5


Every child has a father and mother and can tell the country he or she comes from. We are usually proud of where we come from. Some practices are common to people from a given tribe or country. These may be in the way they dress, types of food they eat, the way they greet or worship. They continue to act in these ways even when they are living in another country. Mordecai knew where he came from and Whom he worshipped. As a Jew, he knew that only God should be bowed down to in worship. He was ready to suffer pain from Haman, instead of bowing down for him. God delivered him and it was Haman that died in the place he prepared to kill Mordecai.

Are you a friend of Jesus? Then you are a heavenly citizen. You must stand out and show others who you are by the godly life you live. Like Mordecai, do not act to please people around you, but do all things to honour Jesus. He will protect you from all harm.
