Scripture

Psalm 100

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What attitudes should one have when entering into worship? Why (3b,5)?

Application

Do I come before the Lord with triumphant attitudes of gladness, joy, thanksgiving, and praise? Do I acknowledge that he is God, that He created me and made me His, that He is good, that his love is eternal, and that His faithfulness is eternal?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, May all the earth shout triumphantly to You, LORD! I serve You with gladness and come before You with joyful songs. I acknowledge that You, LORD, are God. You made me, and I am Yours–Your child, a sheep of Your pasture. I come before You with thanksgiving and praise, giving thanks to You and praising Your name. For You are good, and Your love is eternal; Your faithfulness endures through all generations. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
