I will tell

Psalm 66:16-20 (JDV)

Psalm 66:16 Come and listen, all who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me.
Psalm 66:17 I cried out to him with my mouth, and praise was on my tongue.
Psalm 66:18 If I had seen malice in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
Psalm 66:19 However, God has listened; he has paid attention to the sound of my prayer.
Psalm 66:20 Blessed be God! He has not turned away my prayer or turned his covenant faithfulness from me.

I will tell

In the previous section, the psalmist promised to pay his vows and worship with sacrifices in the temple. Now, he goes further. He promises to be a witness to others of what God has done for him.

Worship is not an end in itself, because God wants to share his love with others. He often does this by motivating his worshipers to witness. If an onlooker sees a person giving generously in gratitude, that onlooker wants to know why the worshiper is being so generous. That is an opportunity for the worshiper to share his faith.

Lord, give us opportunities to share the gospel and our relationship with you.
