The New Laws He Writes on Our Hearts

"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;" (Hebrews 10: 16)

Notice that God has made this covenant with us.

We did not make this agreement. He came to us and cut the New Covenant:

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5: 8)


"Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." (Romans 5: 9)

This New covenant is based on His blood, which speaks better things than the blood of Abel (Hebrews 12: 24), and keeps on cleansing us (1 John 1: 7)

Now, what laws does God places in our hearts?

They are not the Ten Commandments, because every person born into this world has that ministry of condemnation within them:


There are a few laws which the New Testament mentions:

"But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7: 6)

and then

"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)

We are now led by His Spirit, rather than by outer rules.

Another law, is the law of faith:

"Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith." (Romans 3: 27)

There is the law of liberty, which speaks our new freedom in Christ, because the law of Moses has been fulfilled:

"25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." (James 1: 25)

That perfect law of liberty is His Spirit:

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." (2 Corinthians 3: 17)

This verse ties right back to the law of the spirit of life.

Now, is there any verse which wraps up these revelations of God's laws written on our minds?

Yes indeed:

"And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment." (1 John 3: 23)

The law of faith and the Spirit of life ministers to us to believe on Jesus Christ. The other, love one another, fulfills the law of Moses, but instead of creed of "Don't", the Spirit of God ministers God's love to us:

"And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." (Romans 5: 5)

This love enables us to love others:

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." (John 13: 32)

and also

"We love him, because he first loved us." (1 John 4: 19)

The law of the Spirit, of faith, of love -- those are the new laws which God has put in our hearts and writes on our minds today.
