  • Betty-Ellen Crum on Psalms 100
    Does "in his courts" mean in his Church?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hello Betty-Ellen. Psalm 100, a Psalm of Praise by an unknown author, is his declaration of joy & praise as he comes before the LORD in worship. In verse 4, he speaks of entering the gates of the Tabernacle or Temple precinct with thanksgiving and also going further in to the open area in front of the Tabernacle/Temple (the court) with praise. Worship & praise are continually upon his lips as knows the significance of this holy place & where the High Priest meets with God each year.

    Today, those who are saved & in Christ, have bodies indwelled by the Spirit of God ( 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19), & this reminds us that no matter where we are or whatever situation we find ourselves in, we can always talk to God, listen to Him, be comforted by Him & to offer praise & thanksgiving to Him. Certainly, we can also rejoice when entering a Church building preparing ourselves for corporate learning & worship, but we have so much more than those in olden days, where worship of God is not confined in a set aside area, but in response to the Holy Spirit within us causing us to lift our hearts & voices to God always.
