Eternal Deliverance | Esther 9:28
Esther 9:28 These days should be remembered and observed in every generation by every family, and in every province and in every city. And these days of Purim should never fail to be celebrated by the Jews—nor should the memory of these days die out among their descendants.
Every year, a Jewish friend makes me Hamantascheni, a special cookie in the shape of Haman’s hat, to celebrate Purim. She is doing her part to make sure the memory of God's deliverance does not die out among the Jewish descendants.
But this person is not just about Jewish traditions. She is one who has a vibrant trust in the Messiah as her Savior and Lord. Despite a debilitating disease that has confined her to a wheelchair, because of Jesus her chains are gone; she's been set free! Her forefathers celebrated their physical deliverance; she celebrates her spiritual one.
How about you? Can you celebrate the deliverance that Jesus brings...the eternal deliverance from sin and brokenness and separation from God? Knowing Christ is something that "should never fail to be celebrated."
Father thank You for the eternal deliverance that comes from Jesus! May we celebrate that freedom every day of our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
