IMPORTANCE OF SIBLINGS

1 Timothy 5:1 …encourage older men as fathers, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers and younger women as sisters with all purity.

Exodus 4:14-17 What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. So, you are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And as for me, I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you both what you must do. He will speak for you to the people, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were his God. 17 You will also take in your hand this staff, with which you will do the signs.

Exodus 4:27-30 The Lord said to Aaron, ‘Go to the wilderness to meet Moses.’ So, he went and met him at the mountain of God and greeted him with a kiss.  Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord who had sent him and all the signs that he had commanded him.  Then Moses and Aaron went and brought together all the Israelite elders.  Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses and did the signs in the sight of the people,

Exodus 17:10-13 So Joshua fought against Amalek just as Moses had instructed him, and Moses and Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill. Whenever Moses would raise his hands, then Israel prevailed, but whenever he would rest his hands, then Amalek prevailed. When the hands of Moses became heavy, they took a stone and put it under him, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side and one on the other, and so his hands were steady until the sun went down. So Joshua destroyed Amalek and his army with the sword.

Exodus 4:15 I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you both what you must do.

Exodus 4:30 Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses

Exodus 7:1-2 So the Lord said to Moses, ‘See, I have made you like god to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.  You are to speak everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh that he must release the Israelites from this land.’

 

HOW GOD USES HIS WORD THROUGH OUR FAMILY

1. It’s God’s word through us.

Ephesians 5: 19 …we speak to one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs

2. We speak for one another.

Exodus 4:10 Then Moses said to the Lord, ‘O my Lord, I am not an eloquent man, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant, for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.’

3. It’s God’s word with us.

Exodus 6:30 Lord, since I speak with difficulty, why should Pharaoh listen to me?

Philippians 1:14 …and most of the brothers and sisters, having confidence in the Lord because of my imprisonment, now more than ever dare to speak the word fearlessly.

Romans 8: 29 …that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
