Taking Risk Requires Courage
For this order I would like to have a writer that can write sermons. The sermon should be on the text below.
Text: ( Esther 4:10-17) New King James Version 12 So they told Mordecai Esther’s words. 13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” 17 So Mordecai went his way and did according to all that Esther commanded him.
Sermon Topic: Taking Risk Requires Courage
Directions for Sermon
Please no long introduction. Give bible verses pertaining to risk and courage just one or two.
It should have an introduction that explains what a risk is and how courage fits in.“And how we as Christians are faced with many different types of risk.
Wikipedia says a Risk is- The possibility of something bad happening. In simple terms, risk is the possibility of something bad happening. Risk involves uncertainty about the effects/implications of an activity with respect to something that humans value (such as health, well-being, wealth, property or the environment), often focusing on negative, undesirable consequences.
(Example of how to start the introduction) “On this Christian journey there are all types of Risks that we will encounter. Relationship risk, Witnessing risk, Family risk, Business risk, Job risk, and Life or death decision risk. Yes, we are faced with all types of Risks!!!” Just an example but please come up with a catchy introduction. ” Everything in this life is a risk. You are given only two options. Take the risk and expect results or don’t take a risk and expect nothing.”
The introduction should introduce what will be in the body, which is the story of Esther and how she displayed courage and faith as she took a risk in going to the king. Make sure that the text is explained in the body tell what is happening I the text Esther 4:10-17 And make sure that you have a conclusion that sums up the sermon.
Example of what the body of the paper should look like but only in your own words from you reading the story of Esther in the bible!!!
“If I Perish, I Perish”
Here’s Esther. This is especially for women. What happened was remarkable. So here’s the situation. You know this, but I’ll rehearse it anyway briefly. In the exile, after the Jews went into exile, there was a man named Mordecai. He had a younger cousin named Esther. Esther was an orphan. I don’t know what happened to her parents. Maybe they were killed in the siege of Jerusalem. And so Mordecai adopts Esther, and she grows up to be beautiful beyond words.
And the King Ahasuerus, the King of Babylon gets out of sorts with his Queen Vashti and says “you’re out of here.” And in order to get a new queen, he has kind of a beauty contest. And Esther is chosen. She doesn’t have a choice in this. And there she is the queen of the empire as a Jew. He doesn’t know she’s a Jew.
Haman is wicked and hates Jews with all his might, especially Mordecai, because Mordecai, being a good Jew, doesn’t bow down to anybody except God. And so Haman designs a strategy by which he will kill all the Jews in the kingdom and, thus, Mordecai. And so he gets a day on which they’ll all be destroyed.
And Mordecai finds out about it and says “our only hope is Esther.” And so he sends word to Esther, “You have to go to the king. You have to tell him who you are, and you have to get a hearing with him and plead for your people.” And she sends word back, “Don’t you know, uncle, that if you walk into the presence of the king unbidden, you die unless he lifts the golden scepter?” And Mordecai sends word back, “If you aren’t used to raise up salvation for us, God will use somebody else. You better do this.” Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai:
Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf. And neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. And I and my maids will also fast as you do. And then I will go to the king, though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:15–16)
I love Esther. I hope there are thousands of Esthers out there. You stare right into the possibility of being executed. It’s not pretty. It’s not romantic. It’s ugly. It’s gross. It’s shameful. And you say, “If I perish, I perish. I will obey the call of love here.” That’s exactly the same as “may the Lord do what seems good to him,” coming out of Joab’s mouth. “If I perish, I perish,” coming out of Esther’s mouth. These are stories that are in the Bible to cause men and women in this room today to go home resolving “I will take godly risks for my king.”
Give examples of other women in the bible that took risk.
Use Example of Rahab Briefly.
Scripture describes Rahab as “a harlot” in Joshua 2:1. But her past sins fade away when we see how she risked her own life to help Joshua’s men spy out the land. Rahab not only hid the men on her rooftop, but she also lied to the king’s men who asked about them. (Joshua 2:4). Punishment for lying to the king would be severe, but this didn’t deter Rahab from her goal – ensuring the safety of her family.
Rahab knew what was about to happen to her city, and she acknowledged God’s sovereignty. “…for the lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below,” (Joshua 2:11).
She shared her belief and extended an offer to Joshua’s men. She would help them in exchange for her family’s protection. The men agreed. As a result, Joshua spared Rahab. She and her family lived among the Israelites from the day the walls fell. (Joshua 6:25) Rahab took a big risk, setting her life on a course to be used by God in an even bigger way.
Rahab, Joanna, and Abigail took action when they could’ve lost everything. Their love for God gave them the courage they needed to make daring decisions. Their lives serve as inspiration for me today as I strive to become a risk-taker. Like these brave ladies, we too can release fear and face life’s challenges with risk-taking faith.
