Specific Needs
Sixth week of Summer Psalms and the ninth week of #RenewSummer with the Story Catechism
Scriptures: Psalm 68:4-6; Ephesians 3:14-21
Teacher: Paul Hunter
Date: 8/21/16

Listen or download:

The eighteenth chapter of the Story Catechism is focused on how the church us made of Disciples who follow Jesus and how the church is God’s family.

Jesus came to be with us so we could be with God.
People who follow Jesus are called disciples.
These disciples live life together.
Disciples who live life together are called the church.
The church is God’s family.

Story Catechism

Scripture readings:

Psalm 68:4-6 (NLT)

Sing praises to God and to his name!
    Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds.
His name is the Lord
    rejoice in his presence!

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—
    this is God, whose dwelling is holy.
God places the lonely in families;
    he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
But he makes the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

Ephesians 3:14-21 (ESV)

Prayer for Spiritual Strength

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
