3 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? Esther 3:3-5 3 Then the king's servants who were at the king's gate said to Mordecai, "Why are you transgressing the king's command?" 4 Now it was when they had spoken daily to him and he would not listen to them, that they told Haman… 5 When Haman saw that Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor, he was enraged.

4 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? Who we listen to has tremendous impact on our lives. The voices that are most influential in your life, need to be voices that are most influenced by God. Your friends will determine the quality and direction of your life.

5 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? 2. Who are you serving? Esther 2:7 7 Mordecai had a cousin named Hadassah, whom he had brought up because she had neither father nor mother. This young woman, who was also known as Esther, had a lovely figure and was beautiful. Mordecai had taken her as his own daughter when her father and mother died. When you are given authority, how do you use that?

Esther 10:3 3 Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.

8 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? 2. Who are you serving? Philippians 2:4-8 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: When you are given authority, how do you use that?

9 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? 2. Who are you serving? Philippians 2:4-8 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! When you are given authority, how do you use that?

10 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? 2. Who are you serving? 3. Who is in control of your life? Providence is God working within His created world to bring about His purposes. Esther 4:13 “If you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish.”

11 3 QUESTIONS about INFLUENCE 1. Who are you listening to? 2. Who are you serving? 3. Who is in control of your life? Esther 4: Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
