This Is Your Life Under The New Covenant

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

What laws was God referring to when He said, “I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts”? He was certainly not referring to 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 to 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 to the laws of the new covenant when you are conscious of how much God loves you. And the more you are conscious of His love for you, the more your heart is filled with love. When that happens, you will love God and the people around you supernaturally and effortlessly. That is God writing on your heart the royal law of love — that we love because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

Secondly, when you know that you are perfectly accepted by God because of Jesus’ sacrifice, you can have the courage and liberty as a child of God to come boldly into the presence of your heavenly Father. And in His presence, He is able to write on your heart new desires. You will find yourself wanting to 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 you sense what God is writing on your heart and putting in your mind, and as your faith is activated causing you to trust Him and His love for you, He calls it obeying the law of faith. When that happens, whatever you believe, you receive!

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

What is the inner man?

The “inner man,” “inner self,” or “inner being” in passages such as Romans 7:222 Corinthians 4:16, and Ephesians 3:16, and common parlance, is a reference to the spiritual or personal aspect of a person. We think of the “outer man” as our body or outward appearance or behavior, whereas the inner man is associated with things like our mind, heart, soul, and spirit. 

Our bodies are the physical vessels through which we experience life. Our inner person is often expressed through our bodies, and the things we experience through our physical senses impact our inner man. Those who believe in Jesus Christ have the indwelling Holy Spirit, for whom our bodies function as a temple (1 Corinthians 6:19–20). Christians are called to offer our bodies to God as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1–2). However, it is largely in the inner man that we commune with God and from which we relate with others. It is in our inner person that we experience things like love, peace, hope, and joy. 

Though we might be able to hide our inner person from the world, we cannot hide it from God. He knows all and sees all, even into our hearts (1 Samuel 16:7). This is a comfort to us because we know God sees and cares about our deepest hurts. He knows our personality quirks, our deepest longings, our greatest joys, our musings, our fears, and the like. If we are in Jesus Christ, then God is our Father and we know He views us with kindness and compassion. We can trust Him with the secret things of our inner person. 

We also know that God sees the sin that is so often present in our inner man. The Bible clearly states that God is not only concerned with the person we show to the world (our behavior), but that His judgment extends even to the hidden motives of our hearts (Romans 2:16). This is demonstrated in Jesus’ rebuke of the leading Jewish religious people of His day, the Pharisees. The Pharisees had an external or outward righteousness. They followed the law of God to the letter. They tithed even down to their spices (Matthew 23:23–24). However, inwardly they were proud, self-righteous, and spiritually dead (Matthew 23:27–28). Jesus’ standard of righteousness extended beyond outward conformity to God’s law to the inner attitudes of the heart (Matthew 5:21–48). God commands holiness and perfection not only in our outward acts and performance; He demands holy and pure motives from our inner persons, our hearts (1 Peter 1:16). 

This creates a bit of a conundrum since no one, not one of us, is holy as God is holy (Romans 3:10–11). None of us have perfectly pure motives to please God in all we think, feel, and do. Our hearts are sinful by nature and by practice. We need spiritual heart transplants. Thankfully, this is exactly what God had in mind and exactly what He does for His children (Ezekiel 11:19–20). The theological term for this spiritual heart transplant is regeneration. It is pictured also in Nicodemus’ interaction with Jesus Christ. Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again (John 3). This assumes the spiritual deadness of mankind and the need for a new spiritual nature and heart (Ephesians 2:1–10). Men and women need nothing short of a spiritual birth (John 3:3), and this is what the Spirit of God provides through Jesus Christ (John 3:7–8). 

When we receive God’s forgiveness, which is offered to everyone freely who will believe through putting faith in the life and death of Jesus Christ and receiving Him as our Lord and Savior (John 3:16–18), the Holy Spirit comes in to live within us giving us a new heart and new nature (Ephesians 1:13–14). We become children of God (John 1:12) and are declared to be righteous in a judicial sense (this is referred to as “justification“). However, we still retain the sinful tendencies of our inner man. The actual process of transformation (referred to as “sanctification“) is progressive. It is in our inner person that God’s transforming work of sanctification occurs (Philippians 2:12–13).

The Spirit of God is responsible for us as Christians being referred to as new creations (2 Corinthians 5:17). These new natures do battle against our old sinful natures or “old man” (or “flesh”) that remains in us (Galatians 5:17–24; Ephesians 4:17–32). This new inner nature desires to live for and please God not only through outward behavior but by keeping in step with the Spirit in all ways. The Holy Spirit within us gives us the will and strength to resist sin and grow in righteousness. He inclines our hearts toward the things of God and helps us better understand God’s love and grow in obedience to God. The ultimate goal of our new natures is to be conformed completely to the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29). One day, when we are with Christ, our inner man will be completely transformed. Sin will no longer be an issue and we will experience unhindered fellowship with Him.

My Friend,What Do You See?

Mark 11:24
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them

A blind lady was led to a great healing evangelist for prayer. After he had prayed for her, he asked her, “Now, tell me what you see.” She opened her eyes only to be told, “Close your eyes. Tell me what you see.” She opened her eyes again only to be told, “I didn’t say to open your eyes. I asked you what you saw. Close your eyes! Now, tell me what you see.”

This went on for a while, until the lady realised that the evangelist was asking her what she saw on the inside. Did she see herself seeing? When she understood that, she said, “I see myself with sight.” Then, the evangelist told her, “Now, slowly open your eyes.” That moment, she opened her eyes to perfect vision!

When you prayed just now, what did you see inside you? Were you praying for someone’s healing, but seeing that person in a coffin? Were you praying for a financial breakthrough, but seeing the banks pursuing you till you were bankrupt?

You see, you don’t get what you pray for. You get what you believe you receive when you pray. Jesus said, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

Beloved, “whatever things” covers your every need. And believing that you receive them comes before having them. Jesus once told a centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” The centurion’s servant was healed that same hour. (Matthew 8:13) The centurion believed that he received his miracle even before he saw it in the natural.

So when you pray, what do you really believe and see on the inside?

“Well, Brother Emmanuel, I really can’t see it.”

Then don’t pray yet. Change your vision on the inside first. Start seeing yourself with the answer. See yourself healed. See yourself living in the bigger house that you need. See yourself enjoying more than enough. When you can see it and believe it, then pray in faith, and you will have whatever you ask for!

Practice Compassion With Action

Luke 7:13

When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”

My friend, there is no trial, difficulty or challenge we face today that our Lord Jesus cannot identify with. The moment we experience a trial, right there and then, because He “was in all points tempted as we are” (Hebrews 4:15), He feels it too and is able to sympathize with our weaknesses.

Jesus’ compassion for you is the same compassion He felt for the widow at Nain when He saw the dead body of her only son being carried out of the city gate to be buried. (Luke 7:11–15) It must have been terrible for her to experience the death of her only son after having already experienced the death of her husband. What a horrible thought to be left all alone in the world with no means of support! When Jesus saw her, He was moved with compassion and said to her, “Do not weep.”

Now, some religious leaders might also be moved to approach her, but only to say, “Look sister, something is terribly wrong. Your husband died. Now, your only son has died. You must find out what is wrong. You better ask God what sin you have committed and repent. Or perhaps there is a curse in your life that needs to be broken.”

Isn’t it beautiful that Jesus did not extend more confusion or condemnation toward her? He only extended His compassion to her, telling her, “Don’t weep.” This same Jesus will also come to you when you are most distraught and say, “Don’t cry.”

And Jesus’ sympathy does not stop at “Oh, you poor thing! I am so sorry about what has happened to you.” No, His sympathy will move Him to give you the miracle you need in your life. That is why He raised the widow’s son back to life!

Beloved, rest in the truth that He who is seated at the Father’s right hand today understands what you are going through and sympathizes with your weaknesses. The compassion of Jesus toward you causes Him to breathe life into your dead situation and turn it around for your good!

Jesus Christ, The Power And Wisdom Of God

1 Corinthians 1:24
24…. to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

People today run after two things: miraculous signs and wonders, and knowledge. It was no different in Bible times. The apostle Paul acknowledged that “Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom”. (1 Corinthians 1:22)

So when Paul preached Christ crucified as God’s solution to them, the message was “to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness”. (1 Corinthians 1:23) They didn’t understand how getting a revelation of Jesus and His death could give them the miracles they needed or the wisdom they wanted.

Beloved, we don’t have to run after miracles or wisdom today. We just need to run after Jesus because He is “the power of God and the wisdom of God”. The more we know Christ and Christ crucified, the more we will have the power and wisdom of God.

Several believers have shared how they have seen the power of God blast financial debts out of their lives. Not knowing what to do about their debts, they looked to the Lord to deliver them. And the Lord was able to do so mightily because He is indeed the power of God.

So if you are facing a financial debt, Christ has the power to remove the debt. And because He is also the wisdom of God, He will show you where you went wrong and teach you how to stay out of debt!

Let me give you another illustration. Let’s say a man, whose wife has left him, looks to Jesus to bring his wife back. Christ, the power of God, brings about a miraculous restoration of their marriage. But it is Christ, the wisdom of God, who will teach the husband how to keep his wife by showing him what he had done wrong and what to do to strengthen the marriage. If the husband does not have this wisdom, it will only be a matter of time before the same problems surface and his wife leaves him again.

My friend, Christ is both the power and wisdom of God to us. As the power of God, He removes obstacles in our paths. As the wisdom of God, He continually directs our paths!

Your Words Carry Power!

Ecclesiastes 8:4
4Where the word of a king is, there is power…

In Bible times, a king’s word carried tremendous power. What he decreed would come to pass. It would be done. For example, if he said, “Raise the taxes,” the taxes would be raised.

Do you know that we are kings? The Bible tells us that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made us kings. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as kings in Christ, our words carry power too.

When we place our hands on a sick person and say, “Be healed,” the person is healed. When we lay hands on our children and say, “Be blessed,” our children are blessed. There is power in our words because they are the words of kings!

Since our words carry power, can you imagine the harm we do when we say to our loved ones things like, “You are always so careless”, “You are good for nothing” or “You are so stupid”? We are cursing them!

The devil is happy when you use the power of your words against yourself and your loved ones. He wants to see you defeated. So instead of saying, “I am always short of money,” say, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1) Instead of saying, “I am so useless. I can’t do anything,” start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

Beloved, remember that as a king, what you say will come to pass because where the word of a king is, there is power. So learn to say what God says about you in His Word and see His promises come to pass in your life!
