We face the identical temptation that Mordecai and Esther faced as recorded in the book of Esther. Our society permits all beliefs except an exclusive one. The incontestable value of Western culture is tolerance. Ironically, the champions of tolerance are intolerant of a religion like Christianity that adheres to one Savior and one solution to the human problem.
In such moments God’s message to us is clear: remember your name. Friend, you are the presence of Jesus in this world. You are an eternal being, destined for an eternal home. A citizen of heaven. Secured by Christ for eternity. The devil can’t touch you. The world can’t possess you. What people think about you matters not one whit. You belong to your heavenly Father – you remember that.
