Esther - The Great Reversal

Main Point: God is the orchestrator of great reversals.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • What is your favorite underdog story?

  • Why do you think we love underdog stories?

Read: Esther 9:1-10:3

  • There are examples of God showing up in obvious ways, such as a burning bush, but that occurred to only a small percentage of people in the world. The majority of people live lives like those during Esther’s time. Is this a comfort to you? Why or why not?

  • Share a time when you were able to look back in your life and see God working even though you couldn’t see Him while you were going through it.

  • What do you do in, or how do you handle, the times when you’re waiting for God to show up?

  • The Kingdom of God is a kingdom of both now and not yet, meaning it is here, but not yet in its fullness. How does our life need to reflect that?

  • How can we show the Kingdom of grace and second chances to the people in our lives?

Prayer: Pray for peace when it doesn’t seem like God is present.
