Hallelujah! Jesus Christ is risen today – a celebration for Easter, and every Lord’s Day.

* At the start of the Psalm – “I will praise the Lord” (Psalm 111:1).

* At the end of the Psalm – “His praise endures forever” (Psalm 111:10).

In our worship, there is to be both “the fear of the Lord” (Psalm 111:10) and trust in the Lord – “the Lord is gracious and compassionate… He has sent redemption to His people” (Psalm 111:4,9).

We give thanks to the Lord for His love, but we must never forget that “His Name is holy and awe-inspiring” (Psalm 111:9).

* The character of God: He is holy, He is love.

* The message of the Gospel: In love for us, the holy God has provided a way for our sins to be forgiven.

These are the truths of God’s Word which are to shape our lives, making us more holy and more loving.
