The Power of Team-Spirited Ministry (Exodus 17:8 -16)

After leaving Egypt, the first battle that the Israelites fought in the wilderness was against the Amalekites. This battle was a very significant one. If they lose this battle, they will not have enough courage to enter Canaan, because there were seven more fearsome tribes awaiting them in Canaan. If they cannot win against the Amalekites, how can they face more fierce enemies? But the Israelites had indeed won this battle. The Israelites’ victory is a good example for us. This is the power of team work, the victory of three in one. What was the three in one? That is Moses’ raised staff on the hill, Aaron and Hur’s assistance, and Joshua’s fighting the battle downhill. The power of three in one won the victory against the Amalekites. In church ministry, we also need such team work.

Come, Let Us Worship the Lord Together

Today, it is not an earthly king inviting you, but the Heavenly King, the King of kings and Lord of lords; how glorious this is! Psalm 95 is God’s invitation to us.
