“Who knows, perhaps you (Esther) have come to the kingdom for such a time as this … If I (Esther) perish, I perish” (Esther 4:14,16).
When I read the words, “For such a time as this”, I found myself thinking of the words of Galatians 4:4 – “When the time had fully come God sent his Son.”
I read Esther’s words, “If I perish, I perish.” Again, my thoughts went to Jesus. Esther risked her life. Jesus gave his life – “the Son of God loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
