My dad once told me that if you aren’t giving something to your church or getting something from your church, maybe you need a new church. Or maybe you need a mirror. The church is it’s people, led by faith and following God.
We need to constructively examine our churches and ourselves on a regular basis relevant to service to God. Are we just there, doing our thing? Or are we there with conviction, repentance, power?
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
