Psalm 40

7 sacrifice and offering you do not want; but ears open to obedience you gave me. Holocausts and sin-offerings you do not require;

8 so I said, “Here I am; your commands for me are written in the scroll.

9 To do your will is my delight; my God, your law is in my heart!”

10 I announced your deed to a great assembly; I did not restrain my lips; you, LORD, are my witness.

11 Your deed I did not hide within my heart; your loyal deliverance I have proclaimed. I made no secret of your enduring kindness to a great assembly. (NAB)

Father, you did not send your beloved son, Jesus to condemn me. (Jn 3:17)

Jesus came to save me. (Jn 3:16) The joy I have from your salvation I cannot hide. For I have sinned much.

And You have forgiven me.

Thank you O Lord my God!

May your Love flow through me and into the world.

That all may know that you are God.
