THOUGHT: Worship with thanksgiving.
BIBLE: Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. Psalm 100:4
TRANSCRIPT: Hey everybody! We’ve been talking about thanksgiving all week long and all these different elements of how to be thankful. We need to live with thanksgiving, we need to speak with thanksgiving, we need to pray with thanksgiving and we need to glorify God for all He’s done for us! There are a lot of ways to give thanks and weave thanksgiving into every part of the fabric of our lives.
Let me give you one more element to just round off the week. We want to worship with thanksgiving. If you just want to supercharge your worship, if you want to take it to the next level, not just because you sang a new song, or this current thing has come out, or you heard a great speaker, but the way that you really energize your worship is through thanksgiving - to come before God with thanksgiving and praise. Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.
I love what MJ, our worship leader, says. He said, “If I were bringing tickets to get into worship, I’d have to give a ticket that’s called thanksgiving and one called praise. I would have to come into His presence with thanksgiving and praise.”
Let me ask you something. Are you ready to come into God’s presence this weekend, and worship Him with thanksgiving and praise for all He’s done? So many times we come in asking, “God, what can you do for me?” instead of saying, “God! Thank you for all that you’ve done for me! You’ve carried me through this week! You’ve blessed me! You’ve gone before me, and I’m thankful for what you’ve done in my life.
