Call to Worship : Psalm 148

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 78:1-8


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.
