Yesterday we were at Zion Covenant in Jamestown, NY. Brad Bergfalk, the pastor, gave what was for me a memorable sermon on the classic text from Exodus 17 on Moses raising his arms while Israel battled. His points are worth thinking about for the week:
1. Not all of our battles require conventional methods — raising one’s arms in prayer.
2. Sometimes we don’t have the strength to fight battles alone — we need others to hold us up.
3. We need physical reminders of when God prevailed in our lives — the altar Moses built.
