    Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.To me this verse talks about us that after we have received Him as Lord and Savior, We should then seek His face by reading the word of God, what our assignment is in this world and perform it.

    We are to put our faith on Jesus Christ only, an ask God to help us not to go astray as the bible say we will not be forgiven after knowing the truth

    Jesus is the only sacrifice that atoned for our sins. Jesus is calling us to holiness and a life lived in Him, not our selves. We are to share this good news (gospel) with every creature. When we do what God has asked of us then we know we will have the promise that He gave to us (verse 36). But, if we do not, then we know He has no pleasure in us (verse 38

    "if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    But a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation." A hireling-pastor will tell you this scripture does not mean what it says.
