Psalm 100:3-5 (NKJV) 3 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. 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. 5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
The Lord is God. Do you believe it today? Sadly, many Christians act as if He is not God. Many Christians today act as if they are in control of their own lives. Meaning to say they have not given God complete control of their lives. God is the Creator. He made all things, including man. By the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ, “We are His people the sheep of His pasture.” We are His sheep by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. By His death and resurrection, we are redeemed. God reconciled those who will believe unto Himself through the substitutional sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and He is the Shepherd of the faithful remnant of Israel. And we are to “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts wit praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” This is the way God wants us to come into His presence. Sadly, many Christians come to church not to praise God, but to cut people down and gossip. Church to them is a place in which they can get together in their own little click and talk about all things except for God. My friend, if this is your purpose for going to church, then you should just stay home. Because you are not going to be very helpful. We are to come to church with thanksgiving in our hearts to praise God. “For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.” God is good to you and He is good to me. God is good all the time. And all the time God is good. God has not run out of mercy. His mercy is everlasting. And His love never fails, never gives up and never runs out. “And His truth endures to all generations.” My friend, God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. We can put our faith in God; knowing that His love never changes.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
