Verse of the Day (October 21, 2019)

Verse of the Day (October 21, 2019) – Because God had been so good to David, the psalmist yielded his life as a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1-2). As the Lord’s anointed king, David was responsible to follow the directions handed on to him in the scroll of the Mosaic Law. Because God had captured his affections, David could say the Law was in his heart, not just in his hands. He delighted to do God’s will rather than just doing it out of obligation. In Heb 10:5-7, the writer of that epistle quoted Psa 40:6-8 concerning Jesus Christ’s attitude at His incarnation. The sacrifices of the Mosaic system could never satisfy God’s high demands. They only removed sin temporarily and expressed worship superficially. The offering that fully satisfied God was the willing self-sacrifice of the sinless Son of Man. Jesus Christ offered Himself to God as David did, as he expressed in this psalm. (Expository Notes of Dr. Constable) #BMSeminary
