The first promise of the New Covenant is this: "I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts." In the Old Covenant, the law was written on tablets of stone. And the people relied on human will-power and effort to live up to them. We all know that doesn’t end well. But in the New, the Holy Spirit writes God’s laws on the tablet of your heart. And these laws aren’t the ten commandments. No, he has written on your heart the laws of faith, hope, and love. The Holy Spirit is the one who works faith, hope and love out in your life. Now, instead of trying to live for God through human effort, you can actually live for God through the power of God’s Spirit. For he is at work in you to will and to do of God’s good pleasure.
