Enter into His gates with thanksgiving.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
All the glory, praises and honor to the Heavenly Father in Jesus precious’ name !
The subject verse here, describes the author’s invite to the people. An invitation to participate in the worship of the Almighty God. It is not that God needs us, but it is we who need Him. We need God for our existence. The much needed existence to live a life which guarantees the eternity with the Living God. And to live such a life, we are to have a relationship with the God Most High. Most importantly, the relationship shall be greater than any other relationship that we have in this world.
The psalmist asks the people to enter His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. For He alone is worthy to be praised and honored. In His courts we learn to know Him, get to understand Him and have a fellowship with Him and with all the believers. Since the church constitutes all the loving children of God, it is necessary for the whole church body to be in unity. Every member is integral part of the Lord’s church. Hence, we all are to be in the loving brotherly relationship for the glory of the Living God. Therefore, the whole church shall gather to worship the Omnipotent God and give thanks to Him for all the things that He did and does in our lives.
In Jesus’ precious and matchless name, let us exalt the Almighty God forever and ever. Amen.
