A Day for Rejoicing
"This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." ~ Psalm 118:24
Do you realize that this verse is true every day? God has made each day; each day is a gift from his good hand.
Therefore we are to:
1) Acknowledge that he is our Creator and Sustainer.
2) Respond appropriately. The psalmist calls us to rejoice and be glad in this fact. We don't get upset, but rather recognize the goodness of God in his work!
Today is the first day of the new week. It is the day that Christians have assembled together for corporate worship since the Church was established. What better way to rejoice and be glad in the work of God than to join with other believers for the purpose of corporate worship through the singing of songs and hymns and spiritual songs together, through the preaching of the Word, through prayer, and through fellowship?
In the words of liturgy: "it is right to give him thanks and praise!"
