As part of my 25 for 25 (25 devotionals leading up to 25 December), here is Day # 12: This is our fourth of seven Christmas devotionals focused on Psalms. Having explored a little of Psalm 22 yesterday we’re looking at another psalm of David today. In Psalm 40:7 David gives the voice of his future descendant Jesus Christ,
“Then I said, ‘Behold, I come; In the scroll of the book it is written of me.’”
For context, David has just explained that sacrifices aren’t enough to save us from our sins. The answer is given in John 1:14,
“…the Word became flesh…”
I love the many connections Jesus gives us over thousands of years speaking of how words and scrolls and books and writings are in the Word! Thank you, Jesus, for having the conversation with God the Father recorded in Psalm 40:7 and fulfilled in John 1:14 about Your glorious birth!
