Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.
Worship is a part of almost every church service in the country. It is also, for many people, a deciding factor in what church they are going to attend. So what is worship and does it play a major role in the church?
Well Col. 3:16 says " Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." So worship is used to teach and admonish, but it is also for being thankful toward God for everything he has done for us . ( Ps. 98:1, 95:1-3 ....) There are many passages in the psalms about being thankful to the Lord. not only for salvation, but also for him being a just God, a Rock of salvation, the protector of his people, and there are many other reasons also.
Even though there are other reasons to worship one of the most important is to give thanks unto the Lord for all the tings he has given and done for us. So this Christmas season remember to worship God for the gift of his son to us.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. Psalms 95:2
