You Were Made for This Moment Study Guide, by Max Lucado, Paperback
- Author: Max Lucado
The stories of our day our filled with racial divides, political strife, and uncertain futures. It's also the story of the exiles in Persia. The Jewish people were taken from their homeland. They felt pressured to conform to foreign customs. They faced discrimination. Then, an edict was issued that would stamp out the Jewish race forever. Everything appeared to be falling apart for God's people, but then two figures emerged on the scene, and changed everything.
As Max Lucado relates in this five-session study, Esther and Mordecai were the unlikely heroes of the account. They both spend their lives trying to fit in and conform. Yet, both experienced a turning point, a crucial moment where they chose to step up and stand out for the God they served. As a result of their courageous actions, winter turned to springtime for God's people. They emerged from the crisis stronger than before, more unified, and more committed to serving the god of their forefathers, even in their exile.
Today, the question shouldn't be if God will still show up like He did then, but will we choose to be a part of it when He does. Will you, like Mordecai and Esther, recognize your position for such a time as this (Esther 4:14)? God is calling you to rise up in these chaotic times. You were made for this moment.
