Psalm 100 for Reign of Christ Sunday A

Open your mouth!
Say something!
Don’t be shy,
make a happy and joyous noise as praise to God!

Be glad about it!
God has offered us unconditional love,
so come before God with a ruckus!
Make a robust praise!

It’s important to recognize the power and majesty of Almighty God!
Again, don’t be shy.
Acknowledge that God is the Great Creator.
God is our guide and protector.

So, come before God with jubilant singing!
Say thank you, and really mean it!
Tell everyone you meet how great God is
and how precious God’s name remains.
God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
God’s love never ends.
So, give praise that God is always here and available.
God’s love is offered to us and our children and our children’s children.
Who wouldn’t serve a God like this!! Amen!
