ENTER HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING



Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. (Psalm 100:1-4)


Although this psalm begins with an explosion of praise, and a great celebration of the might, majesty, dominion and power of our sovereign God and eternal Creator, the final verse points us to the goodness and grace of our Lord and Savior, whose mercy is everlasting and whose truth endures through time and into eternity – for He is the Way and He is the Truth.
