  5. Enter His Gates with Thanksgiving

"Enter with Thanksgiving"

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
(Psalm 100:4, NKJV)

The psalmist tells the people to enter the temple gates with thanksgiving and the temple courts with praise. 

Whether we are praying in private, at a Thanksgiving Dinner, or attending worship services at the church, or elsewhere, we can enter His gates in with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. 

In 1742 on a Sunday night, John Wesley journeyed into an oppressed section of Newcastle, U.K.

Shocked at the misery,  moral conditions, and poverty, He and an associate opened the service by singing the 100th Psalm, followed by a powerful message.

Newcastle later became a powerhouse for the Methodist Church.

Poem by William Kethe, 1561

"All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.

Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell;

Come ye before Him and rejoice.

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;

Without our aid He did us make;

We are His flock, He doth us feed,

And for His sheep He doth us take.


O enter then His gates with praise;

Approach with joy His courts unto;

Praise, laud, and bless His Name always,

For it is seemly so to do.


For why? The Lord our God is good;

His mercy is forever sure;

His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure."

Psalm 100, Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms
