I love the visual image I get as I read Exodus 17. Moses is holding up his hands with the help of Aaron and Hur as the Israelites fight the Amalekites. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning. But, when his hands got tired and he lowered them, the Amalekites started winning. To help the Israelites win, Aaron and Hur stood on either side of Moses and held his hands up for him.
Together, we win.
This is what our church families should be like. God tells us in the New Testament that we are all different parts of the same body. When we all show up and do what we are called to do, we all win.
When we hold each other up, encouraging each other, loving one another, and spurring each other on in this marathon of faith, we stand firm as the body of Christ.
The Kingdom of God dwells on earth for all the see when the people of his church are obedient.
So, let’s hold up each other’s arms and share the victory!
Glory to God! Amen! Hallelujah!
