Psalm 96 is one that emphasizes numerous areas about who our God is and all He has done. Specifically, two verses highlight the glory of the Lord.
Three times in these two verses the word “ascribe” is used to indicate what God’s people attribute to Him.
The idea is to ascribe glory to the Lord. The question is how can God’s people fulfill such a notable task?
The text explains by saying, “Bring an offering and come into His courts. Worship the Lord in holy attire; tremble before Him, all the earth.”
Worship involves two key areas: an intentional meeting with God and bringing a gift. When fulfilled as God instructs, then He is glorified.
The need for leaders is to direct those who follow in understanding the purpose for which worship is conducted, how it is to be offered, and following the instructions provided by God.
Somehow it seems fitting for leaders to set the example and serve to remind others of all that belongs to the Lord.
