November 26, 2017: Psalm 100 (Rich Merkouris)

  • 0:00 Psalm 100
    • Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
      2     Serve the Lord with gladness!
          Come into his presence with singing!

      3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
          It is he who made us, and we are his;[a]
          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.

    • There's a difference between knowing that you are not God and acknowledging that you belong to God.
