Esther Week 1
Esther 1:1-22 NLT
Welcome to the Nambucca Baptist Church for our service for Sunday September 24th, 2023. Wherever you live in the world, and whenever you find yourself on this page then please join with our church family as we sing and worship, pray and hear the word preached. You are always welcome.
We start on a new person today in our series on women of influence in the bible. We are looking at the book of Esther and I share those things which are part and parcel of starting in a new book. Chapter one introduces us to the opulent and outrageous display of wealth and power that resides in the person of the King of the Persian Empire. Yet for all that wealth he cannot control himself or his temper. So we see a brief appearance of Queen Vashti his soon to be divorced and banished wife. All this sets the stage for God to work His plan to protect His people through the life of a young and beautiful Jewish girl named Esther. You will have to watch the video to get the whole story.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
