GIVING THANKS TO GOD -- PSALM 100
Nov 24, 2019

Psalm 100 concludes a series of Psalms that began with Psalm 91 and look ahead to the coronation of the King of KIngs, the Lord Jesus Christ.   Its true setting is the millennial Kingdom of Christ, when the world will be filled with righteousness, when men everywhere will exalt the Name of the Lord. His glory and His praises will fill the earth (as they should
 at all times.) While these things are future, there is an application in this psalm for us because it is a call to Thanksgiving. The title literally reads, "A Psalm Of Shouting." It's a plea to its readers to look to the Lord and exalt His Name! Thursday we will carry out a tradition as old as America. For many, Thursday will be a day when the family gathers,
 eats too much, watches football on TV, and, (most importantly), they do not have to go to work. I hope it means more than that to us! May we not be guilty of waiting until Thanksgiving to give thanks to God. We are to be thankful to the Lord every day. Thankfully, there are Scriptures like this one in which we find not only a call to be thankful, but plenty of reasons why we should thank God for His goodness toward us. We see:

  I.  OUR ENTRANCE INTO HIS PRESENCE -- VV. 1-2.
 II. ENLIGHTENMENT CONCERNING HIS PERSON -- VS. 3.
III.  THE EXPRESSION OF HIS PRAISES -- VV. 4-5.
