Have you ever wondered if God is with you even though you can't see him? If God could deliver you in spite of what you've done? These questions and more are raised in one of the Bible's most under-preached and misunderstood books. In this sermon, Pastor Josh shows how the challenges that have scared away commentators from the "Godless" book of Esther actually contain the book's genius, mirroring our own experience of God when life hits crisis and despair.

All of us face defining moments in our life...some big, some small, crisis and opportunities, temptations and trials, exposing who we really are and shaping who we will become. Each moment requiring a decision, and each choice moves us closer to or away from Jesus and his purposes. In this sermon, Pastor Josh unpacks the defining moment of Esther’s life, what we can learn from it, and the key to how we can face the defining moments of our life with an unwavering faith and courage that opens up the path to greatness.

Nothing is more fundamental to the human experience than asking the question “Who am I?” How you answer this question not only says everything about you, but also tells you where you’re going in your future. Your identity shapes your destiny. And nothing impacts your day to day life more than your identity. So what is it, where does it come from, and how can you know the source of it? In this powerfully practical sermon, Pastor Josh looks at a case study of two identities in the life of Esther and Haman from Esther chapter 5 that leads us all to face the question “Who or what is defining you?”
