The Scriptures talk much about how to approach the Lord or how to "come into His presence" (Ps. 95:2). From the words to Moses at the burning bush: "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground" (Ex. 3:5), to the invitation from Christ: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28)— we see examples of how to come near to the Holy One.
But there's one place in Scripture that reveals more about how to approach the Lord than any other. And that is found in Psalm 100. Or, as Spurgeon called it, "the ol' one hundred."
So join with me as we discover what it means to "Come before His presence with singing" and to "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise" (Ps. 100:2, 4). I think you'll be surprised. Why? Because it doesn't mean what you think it means.
