Old Testament Lesson: Esther 4:12-17 (Esther stakes her life on God’s truth)
Gospel Lesson: John 11:17-27 (Jesus is the resurrection and the life)
“Bet the farm” – to spend all the money you have on something you think might bring you success. It is easy to get wrapped up trying to be successful in worldly terms and lose sight of the only thing that will last forever – the Kingdom of God. That’s why all of our trust, and everything we have, should be invested in Jesus Christ – the one who died, rose again, and rules over all creation. Today’s service looks at Queen Esther, who bravely risked her life to speak God’s Word of truth!
