The Jesus I Never Knew Week 4
Invitation to Worship: from Psalm 16
Leader: “You are my Lord. Every good thing I have comes from you.”
People: Lord, you give me all that I need. You support me. You give me my share.
Leader: My share is wonderful. My inheritance is very beautiful.
People: I praise the Lord because he taught me well. Even at night he put his instructions deep inside my mind.
Leader: I always remember that the Lord is with me. He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me.
People: You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you will bring complete happiness.
All: Being at your right side will make me happy forever.
Great Teacher God, you alone know the universe and all that is in it. You alone know us better than we know ourselves. You give us people from all parts of our life to guide us; teachers, pastors and parents. In all ways we humble ourselves before you as we seek to learn about you from them. Help us to hear and understand. Help us to be teachers ourselves, examples of you in our world. Help us to share your teachings and your word. We pray in the words the Teacher shared with us, “Our Father…”
Scripture: Matthew 13:10-17
Message: “Jesus’ Teachings”
Theme: Jesus taught in parables, in ways that his listeners could understand. We look to our teachers, of all kinds, throughout our lives to teach us the vital truths to guide us.
