Intro: Happy Thanksgiving, my amazing brothers and sisters! However you plan to spend this day, please put Christ in the center of it all. God created us and loves us as his people (Col 1:16). We are called by his name unto salvation (Acts 4:12). We are liberated and set free from sin by the Truth for all eternity (John 8:32). Death will never own us (John 3:16). Gratitude should fill us to overflowing, because God cares so much for us (Eph 5:20).
In our passage today, the psalmist invites us to enter joyfully into God’s presence; to come and worship him. Take time today to remember God’s goodness to you. Let your response be one of joy, thanksgiving, and praise. Blessings to you all! Love to you in Christ!
Psalm 100 NLT A psalm of thanksgiving.
Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
Prayer: Lord, we worship you with joy and gladness. Your faithfulness overwhelms our souls and we extend to you our sincere gratitude. May the love and appreciation we return to you, today, be a blessing for you! Thank you, Lord! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
