Psalm 95:1-2 NLT
Come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
Let us sing psalms of praise to him.

Yes, let’s come, gather together as one heart before the Lord and offer Him sacrifices of praise. Shout loudly in shouts of praise and adoration!

Regularly our pastors instruct us to offer up shouts to the Lord—shouts of praise, of warfare, as at Jericho, of claimed victory, of joy! When we do this, we are released into such joy in the Lord, you can almost touch it! Many wince at the thought of loud cheers and roaring, but if we can roar in a football stadium for our favourite team, we can most certainly roar with praise and adoration for our Most High God! God is pleased with it!

Yes, let’s shout our praise and thanks to our God! He, who has given all He has to secure us an eternity! He, who cares infinitely more than we do for our most basic needs and details of our lives.

Yes, let us lend our voices to music, and offer up songs and notes to our Father who revels in our worship!

Jesus Christ, we thank You and honour You!
