Psalm 100:4 - Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
Today is the Lord's Day and guess what? The Lord is looking for you in His house on today.
Today is the day to give back to God. He has kept us another week clothed in our right minds, He has allowed us to escape the snares of the enemy, He has kept us through dangers seen and unseen, He has given us the strength and ability to work on our jobs for 40 hours and some of you, more than that.
In appreciation for God's loving kindness and His tender mercy shown toward us once again this past week and even on today in waking us up, we are being called of Him to enter into His house on today with the fruit of thanksgiving and praise on our lips.
We are to be thankful to the Lord our God in spite of what our current lot may be because it could have been worse!
We are being called today to lay aside every weight of sin that so easily beset us so that we can free our hearts and mind to serve, honor, worship, glorify and magnify our Lord on today.
As important as the things of life may seem, nothing is more important than giving Honor to the Lord our God who created us, loves us, cares for us and is concerned about us.
Everything on earth will one day pass away, including our lives. 1 John 2:17-The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Today is a day of 'SACRIFICE"! Yes, serving the Lord is a sacrifice. The mind and flesh has every reason to want to do something else on today, but today is the Lord's day and God is looking for you and I at His house on today.
Time out for excuses! God created us to worship Him and He expects it daily and moreso on the Lord's Day. The day that is set aside for us to reverence and honor Him with our whole heart.
People of God, we were created with a purpose and that is to worship and give God praise. Yes, we were born with a purpose in the earth just to give God praise.
If you are sick or disabled and unable to make it to God's house on this morning, turn a room in your house or apartment into a sanctuary by opening up your heart and mouth in worship, praise and thanksgiving to the Lord your God on this morning.
People of God, the Lord your God is looking to see and hear from you on today. I can only hope and pray that today is not another day of disappointment to Him because of your disobedience.
Created to worship is why we are here! God's purpose only and everything else is second. Born with a purpose, placed in the earth just to give God praise.
People of God, fulfill your purpose on today to service, worship and praise the Lord your God.
I pray that your response to God on today is "I will bless you forever, I will give you praise" for it is my desire to do.
God is good and He has been so good to all of us. Give Him What He Deserves!
People of God, WE OWE GOD!
