Edifier du Jour-Psalm 95:1-6(KJV)
1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. 3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. 5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. 6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
I had to go with the King James today, for "joyful noise" is the term that was on my heart this morning. However, recall who that noise is being directed towards; the rock of our salvation. That can be a problem with worship; we're not doing that to feel good, we're doing it to offer up a sacrifice to the King of Kings. We're also supposed to come with thanksgiving (for some, "and Christmas and Easter but not much else"). How many of us remember to go into church thankful? We may sing a song of thanks, but I have to work towards an attitude of gratitude. Think of that as you're getting ready to go this morning, or next Sunday for most of you who'll read this after Sunday morning.
