100:1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
100:2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come into his presence with singing.
100:3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
I remember as a young child, for one of our school concerts, we sang a worship song that incorporated the words to Psalm 100. As a child, these words did not mean as much to me because I was still young and I was more focused on just memorizing the words and singing along with the rest of the kids in choir.
As I come across these words today, they have more of a profound impact on my life. The concept of worship is not only left to just singing in church Sunday morning but is part of life. Your life and how you life is a public display of how you love and worship God.
This Psalm is a depiction of not just singing songs of worship but praising and thanking God for all that He has done for us. Worship breeds an attitude of thanksgiving and reverence to who God is and what He has been doing and will continue to do in your life.
The last verse in this Psalm characterizes who God truly is. His love is steadfast, endures forever and His faithfulness extends to you and I and future generations.
