Miracles Happen

This is Our Story: Healing in Marriage

Esther 4:1-5:8



“Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.”

– Augustine


1)   When faced with… (Esther 4:1-5:8)


a.  …a difficult decision, Esther called on the community of God’s people. (4:1-16a)

b.  …what she thought was the end, Esther was obedient to God’s will. (4:16b – 17)

c.   …the king, Esther found grace. (5:1-7)


2)   Key Question: Where is the miracle? 


What must have seemed miraculous to Esther looked like simple obedience to God.


3)   A biblically healthy marriage…


a.  …is worked for, not found. (Romans 12:17-18)

Repentance & Forgiveness are two of the most important disciplines of marriage.

b.  …is made up of two biblically healthy believers. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Biblical Priorities - God, life,marriage/family, work, and friends.

c.   ...consists of biblically healthy communication. (James 1:19)


Final Thought: Obedience to the Gospel is the miracle your marriage may need.
