NEW LIFE LESSONS BSFBP: “It’s a Celebration!” Esther 4:10-17

10 Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai; 11 All the king's servants, and the people of the king's provinces, do know , that whosoever, whether man orwoman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called , there is one law of his to put him to death , except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days. 12 And they told to Mordecai Esther's words. 13 Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews. 14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews fromanother place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed : and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? 15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, 16 Go , gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish , I perish . 17 So Mordecai went his way , and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

OBSERVATION QUESTIONS:
1) What did Esther say in response to Mordecai’s appeal to petition the king (v.10-11)?
2) How did Mordecai respond to his niece’s refusal to do what he asked (v.12-14)?
3) What did Esther ask Mordecai to do for her (v.15-16)?
4) What did Esther say that she was willing to do to help her people (v.16)?
5) What did Mordecai do in response to the Queen’s request (v.17)?

APPLICATION QUESTIONS:
1) How willing are you to risk your job, reputation, or relationships to help someone else?
2) When have you done anything risky to help another person or group of people?
3) If you have ever risked anything to help another, what did you do?
4) What was the result of your action, or inaction?

LIFE LESSONS:
1) God is pleased when we willingly sacrifice our time, talent or treasure to help others.
2) God is glorified when we lay down our lives to advance His kingdom on earth.
3) The measure of our love for our Lord is our willingness to love others at any cost.
