Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: 1 Chronicles 16:7-36, Psalms 100:1-5

Key Verse: Psalm 100:4
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name

Psalm 100 was possibly written and used in the time of the Exodus in the thanksgivings offering service.

The psalm calls all people everywhere both Jew and Gentile to acknowledge God, His goodness and to worship Him.

God is good his love endures forever. Elsewhere it says “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Therefore we are not take things for granted, but to be thankful in action and attitude like God expects of us.
Let us today give thanks – for people becoming Christian’s this year – for provision of our needs and more.

I love the Lord because ……….
He heard my voice, my prayer….
His faithfulness ….
His promises….
His provision….
of Jesus….
He will never leave me nor forsake me……..

The Song of Moses


Reading: Exodus 15:1-21

Key Verse: Exodus 15:1
Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:
‘I will sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.’

It might seem strange to have all these action narratives and then a song, but God has included it in Holy Scripture because it sets out the principle. The principle that the correct reaction to the acts of God are praise and worship.

Sermon Points:

A: The Praise of God
In our praise we are declaring God’s worth.
In our praise we are refocusing our attention on God.
1: Personal praise
2: Passionate praise

B: The Person of God
