Review of LS11 Greg Haslam - For such a time as this (Esther 4)

Newfrontiers Leadership Conference 2006 - Leadership Seminar 11

Outline in program:
The story of Esther shows supremely how God’s “invisible hand” shapes us for our divine destiny, then calls us to risk everything to defy assimilation to the spirit of the age and to save a nation. God is seeking no less from us.

Greg Haslam is a master of the well-constructed sermon. He does his research carefully and fills them with good illustrations. In the first part of this message he draws a straight line between the people of Israel in the time of Esther and the church today.

In the second part he focuses more on Esther, applying various aspects of her life as a good or bad example for us. In a moving climax he appeals to his hearers to step out of their cosy Christian comfort zones into the purpose for which God has raised them up.
