Esther 8:16 The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.
Haman had done all he could to destroy and wipe out the Jews. Esther had risked her life to save her people. It was Mordecai’s guidance that had shown her every step to take. The king had accepted her request. The decree had gone out for all those who wanted to harm the Jews to be killed. Now there is freedom. There is life. They are having a great time. They are filled with gladness. God has blessed them.
You too were under a death decree or still are. Satan would love nothing more than to take you from all the good God has prepared for you. Hell was never prepared for you. It was prepared for the devil and his angels. Satan would love to take you there with him, but that is not God’s heart or intention.
Your freedom has already been purchased. You can enjoy what has been done. Jesus has already died on the cross. Your sin debt has been paid. All you need to do is accept the gift that God offers you through Jesus Christ.
The wages of your sin is death, what you have earned, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. You can have light. You can live in gladness and joy. He has honored you by taking your punishment on Himself. Will you accept His gift of salvation.
