Meditation on Psalm 100

"Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before Him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation, (Psalm 100 - The New Living Translation)

This psalm focuses on the worship of our awesome God.

 HOW are we to worship? With gladness and joyful singing. Worship is the expression of joy from a heart overwhelmed with gratitude.

WHY are we to worship? We acknowledge who He is, our Creator. We are His dearly loved possession. As the Psalmist says, we are the sheep of His pasture. We are to come into His presence with thanksgiving and praise, thanking Him for all He has done, praising Him for who He is. The LORD is good! His faithfulness and unfailing love continues forever, from one generation to another.

Let us enter His presence every day with joyful, heartfelt gratitude. He alone is worthy.
