Even If I Perish

Esther 4:16 – “When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – As harsh as it may sound, this should be our attitude when responding to God’s call. If it costs us everything we must still be willing to answer the call. This is not being fatalistic. It is being faithful to the One who sent His Son to die for our sins. We can never pay back that debt, but we can make down payments.

My Advice – Be devoted to God and obedient to His call. The cost will usually not be this high. He is more interested in the willingness than He is in the execution.
