Lenten Devotion -- Friday, March 27

Day 37

Proper worship should be all about making a joyful noise unto the Lord, worshiping the Lord with gladness, demonstrating joy in the experience. We belong to God. God redeems us, God blesses our lives, how else shall we show our gratitude?

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come into his presence with singing.
No, I'm not saying my singing is noise. Well, mostly it's not. But mostly, the point is not to get hung up on the quality of the singing but to just get on with the singing.

That sentiment can be extended to our works: we should not worry about how well we can do them but that we should just get on with them and work for the kingdom here and now. God will bless our attempts and make the best use of what we can deliver...
For the Lord is good;
    his steadfast love endures forever,
    and his faithfulness to all generations.
