'Make a joyful noise unto the Lord' [Psalm 100:1]

This world boasts a cacophony of sounds: many that are supposedly joyful can be quite deafening. It is sad, however, when those who profess Christ and His salvation make no noise at all that can be termed joyful. Or if they do it is in the secret of their own room or home or among their own company.
The joyful sound needs to go around the earth. There is no place better for you to praise the Lord than just where you are. It is there that those to whom you are called will hear you.
The Christian knows joy that emanates from a deep peace within. The world has no equal for it. It is a psalm of praise from the heart of the redeemed and is to be heard throughout all lands. Be part of it: there is nothing like it.
