In Esther 4:3, we see the Jews are in "great mourning." But in the west, we don't grieve well, and it's to our disadvantage. Learning to mourn is important because it's being honest, because God himself weeps, and because it invites other people to know you and love you.
This clip is excerpted from the sermon "Jesus Is a Better Mediator," part 5 of our sermon series Esther: God's Perfect Work through Imperfect People. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll out of Esther 4:1--17 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue at released online on October 14.
