The Misery of our Glory
Esther 2
May 22, 2016
Esther Old Testament

Unlike other characters in the story of Esther, Esther herself is someone who demonstrates quiet obedience to the Lord without a desire to grab the glory. Even though she is promoted to the most influential role as queen of Persia, she never seeks the power, position, or prestige. God providentially promotes her and uses her for His glory and for the saving of the Jewish people. When we seek our own GLORY, we end up with MISERY. That’s because all glory belongs to the Lord (Psalm 115:1). Follow along in today’s study from Esther 2 as Pastor Gary teaches about the crowning of Esther and the misery of our glory.
