Esther (2)

Yesterday we talked about Haman. Haman told the king that God’s people, the Jews, were not obeying the king’s laws. So Haman wanted to kill all the Jews.
Queen Esther was a Jew. She did not want Haman to kill the Jews. Mordecai told Esther that she was the person who could save the Jews. But Esther was afraid to tell the king about Haman’s plan. If the king became upset, he could kill her. Queen Esther was willing to die so that the Jews would be saved.
Many years later there was a man who was willing to give up His life to save others. That man was Jesus. God sent Him to earth to die so that all people could have our sins forgiven.
Jesus accepted the punishment for our sins. He died so that we can be forgiven and live forever with Him. Thank God for Jesus and praise Him for His wonderful plan of salvation.
