A Thanksgiving Devotion:

Text:

Psa 100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Introduction: Why did God make the world? These five verses outline God’s true intentions for his created world.

1.) The work week.

Psa 100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

2 Serve the LORD with gladness...

God intended man to work six days. The work that we do ought to praise him. It is our ministry for him. We are to "serve the Lord" with gladness. If our work is unto the Lord, there will be joy and gladness.

2.) Sunday… Worship, singing praises.

...come before his presence with singing.

On the Lord’s Day, we need to gather in the Church house and enter into his gates with singing and praise.

3.) The sermon.

3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Every Sunday I remind people that God is our creator and our Shepherd. We are encouraged to hear and obey the voice of our Shepherd.

4.) The invitation...

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

God desires to hear one thing from his children. "Thank you." God desires to give us our hearts desires, and he will... as eternity rolls. He has for us but one request, "learn to say thank you!"

5. The commitment.

5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Your commitment and mine is to pass these trues on to the next generation. Teach your children the true meaning of "Thanksgiving!"
