Inside Cover : Colossians 3:16
16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms,
hymns, and songs from the Spirit,
singing to God with gratitude in your hearts
1 Praise the Lord.[a] : Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights above.
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b] the praise of all his faithful servants,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the Lord.
Today’s Sermon – Hope and Tell – The faith of future generations
Psalm 78 - A maskil[a] of Asaph.
1 My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old
3 things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.
5 He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel,
which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children,
6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn would tell their children.
7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds
but would keep his commands.
8 They would not be like their ancestors a stubborn and rebellious generation,
whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.
