Thankfulness #5 Psalm for giving thanks

Thankfulness post #5
Psalm 100 (NIV)
(The only Psalm with this inscription): A psalm. For giving thanks.
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

So long as we are receivers of mercy we must be givers of thanks. Mercy permits us to enter his gates; let us praise that mercy… thanks be to God, the innermost court is now open to believers, and [through Jesus] we enter into that which is within the veil…Be thankful unto him. (CH Spurgeon).
