Come With Singing

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. ~Psalm 100:2-3


Psalm 100 is a psalm of worship. It is a simple psalm that calls all of God’s people to take account that God is worthy of our worship. Worship is the expression of our heart’s devotion to God, our love for Him, and our understanding that we are made to worship and glorify the Lord. The psalm begins with an exhortation to make a joyful noise unto the Lord and to come before His presence with singing. As God’s people, we have a reason to sing!

We see a substantial awareness.

“Know ye that the LORD he is God.” The greatest knowledge to have is the knowledge of Who God is. Knowing God must be personal. We must personally experience Who He is in our life. We do this, firstly, through a saving knowledge of Christ. We do this, secondly, through time in His Word. We do this, thirdly, through trials and difficulties that cause us to lean upon Him for help. Every person must strive to know Who God is.

We see His sovereign authority.

“It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves.” As His creation, we are in subjection to Him. We had nothing to do with our creation. Anything and everything that we have are the gifts of God. With these gifts, we have an obligation to glorify and serve Him. We sometimes have an attitude that God owes us when in reality, we owe Him. We have no right to live a life that is void of God. God made us for the purpose of serving and worshiping Him. As a created being, we are to acknowledge His authority in all things. That’s why in Colossians 1, Paul declares “that in all things he might have the preeminence.”

We see a surrendered application.

We are His people, the sheep of His pasture. The Lord is always to be in the lead. We are to look to Him for each step that we are to take. In Psalm 23, David speaks of the responsibilities of sheep in a flock. The Shepherd makes us to lie down in green pastures. The Shepherd leads us beside the still waters. With His rod and staff, He guides and comforts us. So, knowing who we are in relation to God compels us to come into His presence with singing and thanksgiving. Worship is letting the Lord know how much we love Him and are thankful for what He is doing in us.

We have a reason to sing! Our hearts should be filled with rejoicing in the fact of Who God is and our relationship to Him. Knowing God fills our heart with purpose and gladness. It gives meaning to what we should be doing. It makes the highest priority of the day the worship of His Person. Take time this morning to praise and honor God for Who He is and the great things that He is doing through us.

Have a worshipful God Morning!
