I was glad
The Psalmist writes, "I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the House of the Lord'" What would happen if we stopped saying "we have to go to church" and started saying "we get to go to church"? Our enthusiasm in approaching God in worship can be an igniter for our collective souls. Thus our lives, no matter what the circumstance might be, would be lived full of joy, excitement and the anticipation of God?s lingering presence.
