While the Jews could still journey to the Temple during holy days, they would ritually recite this psalm in the course of coming to the Temple. Additionally, Jewish tradition today, as maintained then, made this psalm to be part of the observances of both Passover (the representation of Christ’s First Coming) and the Feast of Tabernacles (the representation of Christ’s Second Coming). On one level is its use in the course of traditional Jewish observances, on another are the obvious connections to the Messiah, and for the New Testament church there is the application of what it means to worship according to Scripture’s definition. What we will find is that worship is not an activity designed to get us in the right mood for church, but in fact we are supposed to come already prepared. Our coming together is supposed to be the culmination of right worship, not the beginning of it.
