Encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. (1 Thess. 2:12 NIV)

Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord – Psalm 100:1-5

​Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who 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 100:1-5 NIV

This is likely my favorite of the psalms. It is a psalm of praise to God. A psalm that calls us into worship. A psalm that reflects a heart that is full of thanksgiving. One that should be on our lips when we gather together on Sunday. A psalm to sing when we first get up in the morning to start the day off right. And a psalm to end our day with, thanking him for all he has done. There actually may not be an occasion when this psalm is inappropriate.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness! Enter his gates with thanksgiving! Give thanks to him and praise his name! For he is good and his love endures forever!
