Esther’s Exaltation; Or, Who Knoweth? – Charles Spurgeon Christian Audio Sermons
“Remember that as God can do without us, it may be He WILL do without us. It might come to pass that God will say, ‘I will no more bless the world by this England. She has become selfishly mercantile. She cares more for commerce than for righteousness, she is drunk and infidel, I will give her up.’ Let her pass away as all oppressors must, and let the nations say, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, that mighty city! For in one hour so great riches is come to nothing.’”
Esther 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Warning Passages – Martyn Lloyd-Jones / Christian Audio Sermons
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

This devotional book, written for the purpose of teaching Christians how to live out their faith, is divided into five sections. First, Calvin tells us that every follower of Christ loves righteousness and is called to righteousness. The following chapters suggest ways to go about seeking righteousness. In answering Christ’s call to live rightly, Calvin stresses the importance of constant patience and clinging to the grace given through Christ’s death and resurrection. As Christians seek to order their lives around these principles, they must meditate upon God’s plan for the future and how to make that future a reality. Finally, Calvin proposes a few ways how each person can bring God’s grace to a fallen world and avoid abusing their roles as representatives of God to that world. This very brief text can serve as a short introduction to Calvin’s thought for any who wish to broaden their general knowledge or set out on a path of more involved study.
