From your Pastor;

 

         “...I will put My laws into their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”                                                                                                  Hebrews 8:10

 

        This is the difference between the Old Covenant and the New. In the Old the law was placed outside of man, being written on stone tablets. In the New Covenant the law was written on our mind and heart.

         As soon as anyone has God’s life within, they also have the law of life placed in them. It is the Holy Spirit that brings this life and law to us. And then He helps us live it out. This law within is what Romans 8:2 defines as “the Spirit of life” 

          The laws in the Old Covenant had many parts, while the law in the New Covenant has but one, it is the law of life.

                     God given life, how precious it is.

           What does the law in our heart accomplish?

It has to do with our “conscience” which is attached to our heart. With our “will” which is tied to our heart.  And finally our “emotions” which are joined to our heart. All of these the new law of life will affect.

             I’m not saying that your conscience is your heart, nor your will, or emotions.  What I am saying is your heart with Christ in you; is certainly capable and able to exercise control over your emotions, your will, and your conscience.

          This is the Spirit of life, this is being born again, this is the Christian life. This is God’s law written on your mind and heart. Do you have it?

 

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

                                                                 Romans 8:2
