In Esther 8, the Jews’ desperate situation had yet to be resolved: though justice had prevailed over Haman, his cruel edict still remained in effect. How could the Jewish people be saved from their enemies? Queen Esther and Mordecai formulated a plan that brought joy to their people. With that in mind, Alistair Begg challenges us to influence our culture with God-given joy.
1On that day King Ahasuerus gave to Queen Esther the house of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came before the king, for Esther had told what he was to her.
