Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.

Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.

Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, and we are his.

We are his people and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise.

Give thanks to him, bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever.

and his faithfulness to all generations. 

Psalm 100 is a hymn of thanksgiving.  The psalmist is very aware of God’s continual covenant of love. There is the call to worship and acknowledge his divine rule. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. For the Lord is good: his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. There is the inclusiveness, ’missionary’ all are welcome.

Prayer Like the psalmist may we come into God’s, presence singing praise and thanksgiving. Amen
