Life Under The New Covenant

Hebrews 8:10 - … I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts…

What laws was God referring 2 when He said, “I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts”? He was certainly not referring 2 the Ten Commandments, known as the laws of the old covenant, since He said that He found fault with that covenant and declared it obsolete. (Hebrews 8:7–9, 13)

The laws that God puts in our minds and writes on our hearts refer 2 the royal law of love (Matthew 22:37–40), the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25) and the law of faith. (Romans 3:27) These are the laws of the new covenant.You live according 2 the laws of the new covenant when u are conscious of how much God loves u. And the more u are conscious of His love 4 u, the more your heart is filled with love. When that happens, u will love God and the people around u supernaturally and effortlessly. That is God writing on your heart the royal law of love — that we love bcoz He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

Secondly, when u know that u are perfectly accepted by God bcoz of Jesus’ sacrifice, u can have the courage and liberty as a child of God 2 come boldly into the presence of your heavenly Father. And in His presence, He is able 2 write on your heart new desires. You will find yourself wanting 2 do the right thing at the right time. You will live life victoriously from the inside out. This is the perfect law of liberty operating in your life.

Thirdly, when u sense what God is writing on your heart and putting in your mind, and as your faith is activated causing u 2 trust Him and His love 4 u, He calls it obeying the law of faith. When that happens, whatever u believe, u receive!

My friend, God has made it easy — and u will find that it is exciting — 2 live life under the new covenant!
