BIBLE TEXT: Exodus 17:8-13, Acts 9:23-31
32 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
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 the sword.
Acts 9:23-31
23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.
26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem. P29 And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.
30 Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.
31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

RCCG TOPICS

LESSON AIM: God wants his children to bear the burdens of others.
CHILD RELATED TRUTH: Be a burden bearer.
INTRODUCTION: a burden is a duty or responsibility the causes worry, difficulty or hardship. God wants his children to be of help with burdens by showing empathy. Empathy is putting one in the same situation of someone who needs help. Sympathy is showing pity for someone in need of help without offering any assistance.
PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:
A. Aaron and Hur shared the burden of Moses (Exodus 17:8-13). Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites atrophied in. Moses to Joshua to choose some men to fight the Amalekites while Moses, Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
B. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but when his hands were lowered, the Amalekites were winning. As Moses hand became tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it, Aaron and Hur held Moses hands up one on one side and one on the other side and as long as Moses hands were up the Israelites kept winning.
If Aaron and Hur had not held Moses’s hands, what do you think would have happened? ( Amalekites would have defeated Israel, it is beneficial to share burdens)
C. In Acts 9: 20-34 Barnabas helped Saul when Saul came to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were afraid of him not believing that he was really a disciple after his fierce persecution.
Barnabas brought Saul to the disciples. He told them how Saul converted on the road to Damascus and had become a believer, the disciples were convinced and calm. They accepted Saul as one of them this was because Barnabas too shared and bore Saul’s burden.
D. You can share one another’s burdens (Empathy)
– You start by paying close attention to people around you to notice what he/ she is passing through. When someone needs empathy or carrying a burden, he may be sad, get angry, easily cry unnecessarily, stay too guile, aggressive etc
– Encourage the person by reminding him/ her of God’s love. Psalm 144:17-19. God loves you and I, God is love 1 John 4:8. He showed his love by creating us in His image. He also gave His only begotten Son to die for you and I so that you can have your sins cleansed. Jesus died for you, gave you his blood to take your sins away. He rose again on the third day. 1st Corinthians 15:3-4.
Tell the burdened people around you that Jesus loves him/her and really cares about them.
– Be a listening ear James 1:19. Do not condemn or jump to conclusions and be judgemental but be empathic and counsel.
– Pray for someone that is burdened. Ephesians 3:20 pray for him and pray with him, also check constantly by following up on him.
CLIMAX: when you carry the burdens of others by showing empathy it is proof that you are a child of God. John 13:35
