Esther 1:1-3:6

The book of Esther is the only book in the Bible that does not mention God, yet we see God working behind the scenes in the littlest details to shape our lives and to call us to live for him. There is a difference between what the world wants and what God wants. Esther teaches us to be loyal and to be courageous.

Ruth 1

From bitterness to fullness in steadfast love.

On Sept 2, we will begin a new series on the Old Testament books of Ruth and Esther. These two books are very powerful in reminding us, that though God seems hidden, he is never absent. Both Ruth and Esther highlight the courageous loyalty of two heroic women during times when God seems hidden. These two books highlight the steadfast love of God in the midst of dark times. Ruth and Esther are wonderful heroines, who point to Jesus, embolden courage, and give us examples of loving others more than ourselves. I can’t wait to walk through these two books with you and learn from these courageous women!
