1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, 3 and gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. (Psalm 107:1-3)
God’s goodness and mercy are compelling reasons to “give thanks to the LORD”. God redeemed a remnant of Israel from Babylonian exile, and by it foreshadowed the gathering of His “remnant according to the election of grace” through Jesus Christ (Rom. 11:5). All who wish to be freed from the shackles of sin may come to the Lord for redemption. God is good and His mercy is never-ending. Give thanks to God and gather to Him for salvation in Jesus, the Son of God.
