I hope you all are staying safe in these storms. We'd love to see you Sunday for Bible class at 9 and worship at 10. For today, here are a few words.
Holding Up One Another’s Hand
“And … when Moses held up his hand … Israel prevailed ... But Moses' hands became heavy; so they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun" (Exodus 17:11,12).
The noble assistance given to Moses by Aaron and Hur holding up his hands in that battle ought to be an inspiration to all of us in the army of the Lord. Don't we all receive added strength when we unselfishly commend each other's labor of love, and thereby hold up one another's hands?
Our common interest in the greatest work in this world, the work of the church of Christ, surely prompts all of us to lay aside self-interest, petty jealousy, complaining that is born of resentment, and backbiting, and with charity toward all and envy toward none, hold up each other's hand in the triumphant battle which is being waged to the glory of almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ. "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).
How many weary soldiers of the army of the Lord, whose hands and hearts were heavy, have been sustained in the good fight of faith and have gone on to win an ultimate and glorious victory because fellow soldiers of the faith have unselfishly held up their hands in their humble and noble endeavor!
On the other hand, how many tired soldiers of the army of truth and righteousness, with heavy hands and hearts, in life's greatest battle have fallen in the valley of dark despair because their own comrades in the conflict have been guilty of "man's inhumanity to man!"
Be an Aaron! Be a Hur. Help your brother and your sister in the faith! Hold up each other's hand.
"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad" (Proverbs 12:25).
Have a great week!
Come See Us, We'd Love To Have You!!
