Serve the Lord Daily

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)

Mordecai was a true patriot. Exalted to the highest position under King Ahasuerus, he used his eminence to promote the prosperity of Israel.

He was a type of Jesus, who, upon His throne of glory, seeks not His own, but spends His power for His people.

Every Christian should learn to be a Mordecai to the church, striving according to his ability for its prosperity.

Those who are placed in stations of affluence and influence, should honor the Lord in high places, and testify for Jesus before great men.

Those who have close fellowship with the Lord, should plead daily for the weak of the Lord's people, the doubting, the tempted, and the comfortless.

Those who are well instructed by the Lord, should teach others the things of God.

Let us seek the welfare of God's people and cease from living to ourselves.

Let us serve the Lord and minister to His people.
