The Laws Written on Our Hearts

The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah predicted that a New Covenant would be coming where the law would be written on our hearts. We know that was not the Mosaic Law. We do know it is the law of liberty, law of love, and the law of Spirit of life.

“2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2 KJV).

Paul called the Ten Commandments the “ministration of death, written and engraven in stones,” (2 Corinthians 3:7 (KJV). The law brought punishment and sin. Paul said it was the law of sin and death.

We are free from the law of sin and death. We have this new law of life written on our hearts. It is the Spirit who gives life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Therefore in reality, these laws written on our hearts are Jesus dwelling within. We have the Spirit to guide us into all truth and Jesus is the truth.

It’s all about Jesus. We have His life within and we have His freedom to walk in. Hey, that’s a good deal.
