Such A Time As This
“And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14, NIV)
In 473 B.C. a power-hungry man wanted to annihilate the Jews. He deceived King Xerxes to issue an edict ordering their extermination. Now, it’s up to Queen Esther to intercede for them before the king. But she’s afraid for even if she’s the queen she needed an appointment to see the king. To show up without permission could mean death. Yet her uncle Mordecai reminded her that it was not an accident she became the queen. It was God’s providence. She’s their only hope.
If you were Esther, what would you do?
Now, let us fast forward to our time, the 21st century. Satan wants to control and corrupt the workplace. But the workplace belongs to God. Our work matters to the Lord. He wants to redeem it from Satan’s clutches. And the Lord wants to move in and through you. Billy Graham declared, “One of the next great moves of God is through the Christians in the workplace.” It is not an accident that you are where you are right now in your work. God providentially positioned you. What if you’re the only hope for your employer (or employees) to hear the Gospel?
That’s why this coming June 18, at 5:30PM, Makati Gospel Church will host a special seeker event titled “Money Talks!” Pastor Joby Soriano of Christ Commission Fellowship Alabang and I will speak on what the Bible says about our finances. Start praying for your supervisor, manager or CEO. Please give us their names and we will send invitations to them. You may call 816-0634 (Look for Joyce).
Who know but that you have come to your company for such a time as this?
Yours in Christ,
