For giving thanks …
Psalm 100:1-5 NLT
 Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth!
 Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy.
 Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
 For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
Today we consider three important actions in the life of the believer.
- Worship the Lord with gladness
- Acknowledge the Lord is God
- Thank and Praise the Lord
Taken together by and practiced regularly, these three activities make for a beautiful and grounded person. When we are around believers who are transformed by these practices, we are blessed and desire more of the presence of God that they exude.
Let’s get into the habit of deeply worshipping the Lord in all gladness, acknowledging that He is Lord and God in all things, and being grateful so as to give Him praise continually.
