Pageant Queen with a Purpose, #25
Hope. The Jews now had hope where before they had nothing. Read Esther 8:15-17.
Then Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal robes of blue and white, with a large crown of gold and a garment of fine linen and purple; and the city of Susa shouted and rejoiced. For the Jews there was light and gladness and joy and honor. In each and every province and in each and every city, wherever the king’s commandment and his decree arrived, there was gladness and joy for the Jews, a feast and a holiday. And many among the peoples of the land became Jews, for the dread of the Jews had fallen on them.
Esther 8:15-17 NASB1995
After this decree had been passed, they now had hope. This hope actually inspired others to want to be part of what was going on. This hope resulted in glory to God. Do we have our hope in God?
