Psalm 100: 1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. 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. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name. 5 For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Reading through the Moravian Daily Texts, which has been taking us through the major prophets of the Old Testament, has been a bit of a slog for a while. It get wearisome reading God’s judgment of Israel over. And over. And over.
But today we have this psalm, a psalm of pure joy. Yes! Today I’m asking the Lord to give me joy in my spirit. Lord, let it be so. Amen.
