At what point does assimilation in culture mean capitulation to culture? At what point does assimilating into culture become compromising towards God? How do we as Christians live in a world whose values are in direct conflict with our own? Withdraw? Fit in? Protest and criticize? As Christians called to live a distinctly different life than the world, where and how do we draw the line? In the sermon, Pastor Josh unpacks Esther chapter 2 as the sordid tale continues and the characters face this very dilemma.

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.

What choices lead to not being opposed by God, and how do we make them? How big of a deal is pride and humility in our every day life? How can we know that God is for us, not against us? The stakes could not be higher in this pivotal story in Esther...a King’s sleepless night, a kaniving narcissist’s plot, and a humorous yet devastating surprise twist combined for a powerful lesson in the dangers of pride and the beauty of humility in this power-packed story of life and death in every-day choices.
