Psalm 95 instructs us in the actions and postures of right worship: we are to come before God with joyful songs, to praise Him for His greatness. We are to bow down and worship, for He is our God, who shepherds us. And we are to listen with soft hearts to His Word, and then go forth and obey it. The Psalmist concludes with the sobering example of the Israelites in the wilderness, who came with songs and bowed down, but hardened their hearts and were cursed by God. Instead, as we come to worship, we are to enter God’s rest not just thankful for past blessings, but eager to hear and obey so that we might receive new life as well.
