The law is writtien on our hearts

“This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their mind and write them on their hearts. I will be their God and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbours, or a man his brother saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will al know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. “ Heb 8:10-11

The Law is written on our hearts – The Law expresses the Character of God. The law reveals our inability to enter into the righteousness of God by ourselves. The Law written on our hearts is Christ himself. He is with us and He is writing His character on our hearts. This is radical and ongoing transformation. We have a tendency to settle for a copy of the real and to do things ourselves. The real is Christ, grasped by faith. He is writing His law on our hearts – value based leadership not rule controlled. The value is not in the principle but in the Person. This is astounding grace! This is true for those of us who think we have something more than others and those who feel inferior. Amazing truth is that Christ is with us. The key to the future walk of faith is our relationship with Him.
