Esther 10:3

 
For Mordecai the Jew was second to King Ahasuerus, and was great among the Jews and well received by the multitude of his brethren, seeking the good of his people and speaking peace to all his countrymen.
Esther 10:3

All throughout the book of Esther, we see Mordecai as a true patriot to his people, as well as his worldly king. Wherever he found himself, he used his influence and position to protect his people. Once he is exalted to the highest position under Ahasuerus, he used his eminence to promote their prosperity.

In this way, he is a type of Jesus. On his throne of glory, he seeks not his own but spends his power for his people. What a great example he is for all of us in the church. We should all, according to our own ability, work for the prosperity and protection of God’s people. We should all seek to give our gifts away.

Whatever our blessings and gifts, we do well when we use them to serve others. Whatever position and influence we have, we must remember that promotion does not come from the east or from the west, or from the south. But God is the judge (Psalm 75:6-7).
