“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us,
and we are his; we are his people,
the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise
his name. For the Lord is good
and his love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues
through all generations.”
Psalm 100: 2-5
Wow! Hallelujah! If you think high praise of God started with a non-denominational church — think again!
This is one of those classic psalms that combines the 2 essential elements of thankfulness and praise. What power there is in these two interwoven themes.
And there is a key theological truth here that is at the core of all we believe, did you catch it?
Read through it again, and see if you can find it. I’ll wait here.
Ok, so did you find it? Well…… if you guessed…….we are made by Him – you’re right!
Your life has never been by chance, you are not a mistake…..and there is always hope – because you were made by Him! Hallelujah again!
Lord God we thank you, and praise You! And help us to understand there is always hope. Amen!
