Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God by believing in Christ.
This is because all of you who were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. You have put him on as if he were your clothes.
Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.
Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.
But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.
This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
We are receiving a kingdom that can’t be shaken. So let us be thankful. Then we can worship God in a way that pleases him. Let us worship him with deep respect and wonder.
