God Deserves Our Worship
Psalm 100:4-5 "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations."
Words cannot explain enough why we should be thankful to God. Neither can we adequately offer praise that is due Him. So what we can do is thank Him and bless His name.
A few things to be thankful for:
Christ - the One whom God sent to die for us.
The Holy Spirit - from whom we are given the Bible, God's word.
Church - the only organization given the directives for doing God's work on earth today.
Salvation- While we should be serving God because He is God, we can be thankful that He blesses us with the hope of salvation, and knowing that if we are faithful, we will spend eternity with Him in heaven.
The Saints - Yes, there are times we would like to wring their necks, but if you happen to be associated with godly people who keep the spiritual things in the proper perspective, you are most certainly blessed.
Our families - When all follow the precepts of the home as God would have it, it is a splended relationship.
The time here on earth - we must keep busy while here for rest is to be after our life is over. And remember that time flies when you are having fun.
For everyone one of these things, we are to be thankful, but at the same time we are to give God praise and glory for what He has done for us, and simply for who God is. He is the LORD God Almighty, and is worthy of our praise.
Hebrews 13:15 "Through Him (Jesus) then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name."
