Psalms 100

Psalms 100

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

I.  Serve the Lord With Gladness:  (verses 1-2)

Every so often we like to give a joyful shout to the Lord. Praise God!  We should probably do it more often.

We have the opportunity to serve the Lord with gladness.  God gives to us both hope and purpose.  We have hope because we can believe that God is able to give us wisdom and strength in whatever situation we might face.  God gives purpose to our lives.  Each and every one of us has a role that we play.  This knowledge gives us a lasting sense of worth.

We can all sing.  Some may sing beautifully, while others may simply make a joyful noise, but we should all sing to the Lord.  We can also use recorded music in our homes, cars, wherever we might be to create an atmosphere of worship.

II.  We Are His People:  (verse 3)

He is God and He knows what is best for us.  We can trust Him.

He has made us and without Him we could do nothing.  We are not self-made.  All glory goes to God.

God will take care of us.  We do not need to worry or be afraid.

III.  Give Thanks (verses 4-5)

We should give God thanks.  All good gifts come from God.  It is right to give Him thanks.

We should give God praise.  He is worthy of our praise.

God is good.  We do not serve a mean or vindictive God.  He is good to His people.

Conclusion:  We are God’s people.  We should serve Him with gladness and give Him thanks.
