Be Thankful Unto God
Sunday November 23, 2019
Scripture: Psalm 100:1-5; Text: Psalm 100:4
The Psalmist is letting us know in this passage of scripture that we must be thankful unto God, for everything that we have. We must be thankful unto God, for the very life that we live. We must be thankful unto God, for all things.
Psalm 100 is the last in a series of psalms that emphasize the Lord as King. It describes God’s people going into His house to worship Him, and it spells out what their attitude should be as they go. It also calls out to all the people of the earth, urging them to recognize that the Lord is God and inviting them to receive Him.
In a very practical sense, this psalm teaches us the actual purpose of the church: to joyfully express praise and thanksgiving to God, to present ourselves for God’s service, and to urge all people of the earth to come into a relationship with God through His Son.
Psalm 100 teaches us what our attitude should be when we go to God’s house. Not only should we come before the Lord with gladness and joy, but we should enter His presence with thanksgiving and praise. God is good to us every day. He is ever faithful to us, and His love never fails. As we walk or ride to church, we should prepare our hearts to give thanks by reflecting on all He has done for us in the past week. As we walk through the doors, our hearts should be filled with praise. When we enter the sanctuary, and the service begins, we should lift our voices and wholeheartedly sing the praises of our good, loving, and faithful God.
We pray that you will come and worship with us. Our services are held Sundays at 8:00 and 11:00 am; Sunday School at 9:15am. Wednesdays noon day worship. Bibles Study classes Wednesdays at 1:00 & 7:30 pm. Plus every other Wednesday at 5:00 pm.
May God continue to Bless you and your family.
