New Heart

being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. 2 Corinthians 3:3

Many Christians today still have great confusion over the difference between the Old and New Covenants. The Apostle Paul gives a clear teaching in this chapter, when you become Born Again and baptized by the Holy Spirit, the Law of God is written in your heart. Its not the Law that was written in stone, its written by the Holy Spirit

Now many people have a hard time comprehending this, how can we live morally if we are not under the Law anymore? Because we are living by the Holy Spirit under Grace, not living by the flesh under the Law. The old man has been crucified and you have been made new!

who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6

By the Holy Spirit , God has made us worthy enough to be his servants. We are not worthy by doing the works of theLaw, by its by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ. We should not boast in our works either because we are only redeemed by the blood of Christ.

As Paul states the Law kills as none of us are worthy or able to fulfill the Law, but only Jesus is worthy or able to fulfill the Law (Matthew 5:17) which makes us righteous before God

 

“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26

The New Covenant is not a New Testament idea, this was a prophecy throughout the Old Testament. The Prophet Ezekiel states God will remove our heart of stone (The Law) and replace it with a New Heart and New Spirit, the baptism of the Holy Spirit creates our New Heart!

Only Jesus can save you, receive him into your heart and become Born Again Amen!

    Amen bro,another well done post! 🙂

    It’s utterly impossible to do anything good/right or pleasing if you don’t have the Holy Spirit living in you, deeming your every step into righteousness! I praise our Holy God for even wanting a wretch like me. Enabling me to change from a life of sadness do to sin to a life of joy do to His empowering Holy Spirit! We must always remain open to the Holy Spirits voice as He guilds us.

    Ps. I’m sorry for your loss. 😦 Please give your wife a hug from me! ❤
