So I haven’t posted in a while, so what better time to post than now.
The title of this post was actually the title of today’s sermon and boy was that a great sermon. This is just a small piece of what I took from the sermon and thought I should share.
It is a blessing to serve The Lord.
Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. (Psalms 100:2 KJV)
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. (Psalms 23:6 KJV)
The words goodness and mercy tells me something; the goodness of God gives me what I don’t deserve and the grace of God gives me what I need.
But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. (Psalms 5:7 KJV)
The safest place to be is in the house of The Lord.
The Lord’s house has benefits:
I shall dwell
– because I need goodness
– because I need mercy
– because I desire to be with The Lord forever.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. (Psalms 27:4 KJV)
Thank You Jesus… Mercy said No!
