Psalm 100 – Seven Commands of Thanksgiving

Psalm 100 AMP
A Psalm of thanksgiving and for the thank offering.

1 MAKE A joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands!

2 Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing!

3 Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!

5 For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Look at the subtitle of this psalm, I never realized before that psalm 100, a psalm of thanksgiving was “for the thank offering”. Look at the above psalm, it’s interesting that it contains seven ways to praise and that these ways to praise are also commands: seven commands of thanksgiving!

Do you want to say thank you to the Lord Jesus Christ?
Seven Commands of Thanksgiving:

  1. Make a joyful noise{with the voice of triumph} to the Lord
  2. Serve the Lord with gladness{with exceeding joy, glee}
  3. Come before His presence with{joyful triumphant} singing
  4. Enter His gates with thanksgiving{a thank offering, a sacrifice of praise, adoration}
  5. Enter into His courts with praise{associated with singing a new song}
  6. Be thankful to Him{with all you heart}
  7. Bless and affectionately praise His name{as if kneeling to your King}

.

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. -Heb 13:15
