Psalm 100:4-5 (NKJV) 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.
My friends, this is how God wants you to into His presence. When you come to church, God wants you to come with praise in your heart. When you come to church, God wants you to come with thankfulness in your heart. My friends, if you fail to do that, then you are not going to gain much spiritual feeding when you go to church. Sadly, this is the case with many people today, their eyes and minds are on the clock as soon as the service starts, because they have other things to do. And they justify their restlessness by saying that the sermon is too long, or the pastor is repeating the same thing over and over, or they already know what is being taught. The heart of the matter is they can’t sit and listen to the Word of God because they did not enter His gates with thanksgiving. My friends, make sure you go to church with thanksgiving and praise in your heart. So, that you can listen and hear the Word of God and be edified by the Holy Spirit who makes the Word of God real to your heart. For God is good to you and He is good to me. As the saying goes, God is good all the time. And all the time God is good. “His mercy is everlasting. And His truth endures to all generations.”
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
