Silence Kills

Pastor Mark reflects on current events about persecution of Jews and Christians and/or how Christianity is affected by surrounding cultures, and in particular ISIS and the recent attacks in Brussels. We are commanded to not be silent about our faith despite societal pressures to be quiet. This sermon ties this into King Xerxes and how his wife denied him for his sinfulness, and how the silence of his advisors implicitly strengthened King Xerxes and his sinful nature and solidified his standing for the sake of maintaining cultural norms.

This leads to Esther, who was in the harem of Xerxes and chosen due to her beauty, and the role she was designed to play to save the Jewish people. Her obedience to her father Mordecai and her strength in her ability to have restraint when it was needed, but also to be vocal when it was needed, saved the Jewish people in Persia from a massacre and instead blessed them with riches from those who had sought to destroy them. They key virtues of obedience and faithfulness are on display throughout this multi-part series, and the importance of being vocal even when one risks persecution and possibly death when it comes to being a messenger from God.
