Scholar J. Clinton McCann says that the "proclamation of God's reign always calls for a decision, but that call for decision is highlighted by the structure and movement of Psalm 95."

How is Psalm 95 calling you to make a decision in favor of God's goodness/mercy/love/justice today?

Psalm 95

1 O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.

5 The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.

6 O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would listen to his voice!

8 Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,

9 when your ancestors tested me, and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.

10 For forty years I loathed that generation and said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they do not regard my ways.”

11 Therefore in my anger I swore, “They shall not enter my rest.”
