I have always loved the story and character of Queen Esther. I love her attitude of, “I will do it because I have to, and I am not afraid.”
I wish I had that.
But as I dive deeper into the scriptures that I thought I knew so well, I’ve found a woman that I connect to more than I ever thought.
In John 4, we find the story of the adulteress Samaritan woman who meets Jesus at the well. I'd always previously written her off because adultery is not something I relate to.
But she is so much more than just her sin.
