One of the most essential preparations for eternity is delight in praising God; a higher acquirement, I do think than even delight and devotedness in prayer. –Chalmers
Psalm 100- A Psalm of praise
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. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
The first time I came across Psalm 100, Sharon and I had taken a trip to Antigua to visit now retired Missionaries Benny and Judy Aldridge. The church that they started sang this Psalm in a little chorus and it has stuck with me ever since. Remembering the joy on their faces singing of our great Saviour brings a smile on my face and a joy in my heart!
