The Personal Pronoun HIS

Psalm 100
1Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

According to Biblegateway there are 5983 results for the personal pronoun HIS in the Bible. My pastor preached on the eight found in Psalm 100 tonight. It was a great reminder that we are welcome in HIS presence, we are HIS people, the sheep of HIS pasture. We must enter HIS gates with thanksgiving and HIS courts with praise. Thanksgiving and praise are our tickets in. We are to bless HIS name and HIS mercy and HIS truth are everlasting and endure forever.

Who knew the significance of such a small word. HIS has taken on new meaning for me, and I will try not to take for granted that I am HIS.
