Some of the most noted women in the Bible made the biggest impact because they lived as if they were “not their own.” They sacrificed their reputations and lives to see God’s will performed through them. Queen Esther risked the king’s knowledge of her nationality and went before him without permission though it could cost her life. Ruth left behind everything she knew to faithfully follow her mother-in-law to a religion and land not belonging to her. Mary lay down her reputation to see the Savior born into the world, risking slander and even stoning. Each one of these women, selfless and dedicated to the plan of God, made history. They were key players in saving a nation and carrying on the lineage of the Messiah. They will not be forgotten . . . especially not by the One who assigned them “for such a time as this.” Will we be one of them?
