Psalm 122:1 1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the LORD.”
A wife woke her husband up on Sunday morning, “It’s time to get up and get ready to go to church.” He answered, “I am not going to church today.” She responded, “You have to go to church today, get up get ready.” He answered, “Listen, those people don’t like me and I don’t like them so I am not going to church today.” His wife responded, “No you listen…YOU are the Pastor you have to get up and go to church.”
I enjoy getting up and getting ready for church. I love the Psalm today, “I was glad when said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the LORD.’”
I am glad to go to God’s house because God has been GOOD to me. Even the air I breathe comes from Him and it is go good to be able to breath.
I am glad to go to God’s house because God LOVES me. God’s love for us is immeasurable. Can we even begin to fathom a love that sacrifices one’s only Son for our sins. God gave HIS only Son for you and me.
I am glad to go to God’s house because God ASSURES me. There isn’t a day that I live and breathe that I don’t find even greater assurance in God. He assures me that He loves me. He assures me that I am secure in His hands. He assures me that He cares for me. He assures me that I am His own. He assures me that I am called to preach. He assures me!!!
I am glad to go to God’s house because God DESERVES my worship. Nothing and no one deserves the worship, praise and adoration that belong to God. It is our privilege to enter HIS house and lift our heart and life in worship of HIM.
Father, I am glad when it is time for me to go to Your house…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
