Esther’s bold request – “Spare my life … Spare the life of my people” (Esther 7:3) – was followed by an even bolder accusation of Haman – “Our vicious enemy is this wicked man, Haman!” (Esther 7:6). God honoured His servant, Esther. God’s people were spared. God’s enemy, Haman, was killed. Here, we see salvation and judgment. The Lord is the Saviour of all who put their trust in Him. He is also the Judge of those who oppose Him.
