"Oh give thinks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, And gathered out of the lands From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south."   {Psalm107:1-3}

I don't know how many of you remember Ben Kinchlow from the 700 Club in the 80's? He came to SGT to share with us on a Friday night, and I will never forget this verse that he shared.
He was boisterous, and exuberant, excited and just plane  loud about letting the redeemed say so! I don't remember much of His preaching, but I know it was about this verse,  and 31 years later I still remember it. He felt the excitement of God in sharing it. He understood how important it was for us to grab hold of scripture, and especially this one because often we don't state verses out loud, but let me tell you, everyone knew this verse by the end of the night.

When you worship, proclaim His goodness, declare His word, it will build you in ways that you never before realized. It will bring heaven a little bit closer, and you will grow more in your love for God and the things He has said. "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!!"  Amen.
