Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.
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.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him, bless his name.
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
(Psalm 100, NRSV)
We are His people!
We ar ethe sheep of His pasture!
We should enter His courts with praise and sing of His everlasting and enduring love!
Notice also we were not asked if we wanted to be His people, or His sheep. He claimed us and made us His own, without asking us about it.
He loves us, and there isn’t anything we can do, but shout our praises of Him, and give Him the adoration He deserves!
