A Call to Worship and Obedience…
Read Psalm 95
Everything that has been created gives glory to God.
The psalm writer encouraged the people to bring an offering of worship to God.
With dramatic beginning, the psalmist invites all God’s people,
“Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD!”
The entire congregation is called to sing for joy to God, who alone is worthy to be praised.
How celebrative and exuberant the saints should be in worshipping the Lord.
Inviting all believers, he says, let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation, a metaphor referring to the rock from which the water in the wilderness flowed (Exod.
17:1-7; Num. 20:1-13).
Ultimately, the rock is God Himself , the people’s steadfast sufficiency and security.
They should come before Him with thanksgiving and express humble gratitude for His abundant provision, while magnifying His name with music and song.
Singing expresses God’s truth in a way that stirs the soul of the worshipper.
True religion is not stoic, leaving worshippers emotionally flat, but it ignites the affections of the heart, especially with joy.
These introductory verses call on the congregation to glorify the Lord in song for His salvation.
The phrase “rock of our salvation” combines the ideas of security and deliverance.
God is One who gives security by providing deliverance from danger.
SELAH (let us pause and calmly think about these things)
