Psalm 100 is often categorized as a psalm of thanksgiving and is one of the most universally known and recited passages in the Bible. The psalm serves as an invitation, a global call to worship that is not confined by geographical or cultural boundaries. The central theme is one of jubilant gratitude to God for His enduring love and faithfulness. The psalm starts with an exhortation to "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord," painting an image of uninhibited praise. It further emphasizes the need to serve God with gladness and come into His presence with songs of joy. Acknowledging God as our Maker and ourselves as His sheep, the text beckons everyone to enter His gates with thanksgiving and courts with praise. It concludes by affirming God's eternal goodness, mercy, and truth, qualities that warrant our ceaseless gratitude and devotion. Psalm 100 encapsulates the essence of worship in its purest form: a heartfelt acknowledgment and celebration of God's attributes.

Psalm 100

1  (A Psalm of praise.) Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

2  Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3  Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
