THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Once, when I was a pastor, the wife of the Chairman of Deacons
She said, “Bro. Bruce, we're organizing the Deacon's Fellowship
supper. We would like for you to bring a short devotion that evening.
You know, just a brief word.”
I answered, “So, what you’re saying is ‘be sure and don’t preach
She answered, “OH! I would NEVER tell you that! But, you know,
just a brief word.”
10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek:
and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel
prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it
under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands,
the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands
were steady until the going down of the sun.
13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of
Light from the WORD.
Notice that Aaron and Hur HELPED Moses when he was tired.
It might have been a seemingly menial job.
All they did was hold up Moses' hands.
But Aaron and Hur SERVED where they were NEEDED!
By serving where they were needed, Aaron & Hur helped Israel
defeat the enemy!
In church, some people:
just sit picking their nose,
some get their nose pierced,
and some are just downright “nosey!”
However, the church should be built around loving cooperation.
We should be cooperating together to defeat our biggest enemy:
the ole devil.
The main purposes of church are three:
evangelize the lost,
educate the saved,
and minister to the needy.
So, how about we all “nose around” and find a place to SERVE?
