Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; My ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require. Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.” Psalm 40: 6- 8 (NKJV)

 

Even though some people around the world have abused the message of Grace, when people embrace the true message of Grace, it leads them to obedience. As we see in Paul’s letter to Titus, Grace teaches us to follow God’s path.

The book of Psalms conveys the feelings, impressions and experiences of godly men who related with God through praise, prayer, and singing, based on their appreciation of the Law. For believers in Jesus, we must remember that Christ has fulfilled the Law and has appeased God on our behalf, so we do not bear the burden of appeasing God by keeping the Law. Rather, we rely on Jesus Who is the end of the Law for righteousness sake (Romans 10: 4). Now that we have been made righteous in Christ, whenever we read the Psalms and see a blessing for the righteous, we can boldly claim it for ourselves, because Jesus’ righteousness at work in us entitles us to every blessing.
