And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,” then he adds, “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.
The Holy Spirit testifies that the LORD, God, the Almighty has indeed promised that His Word will be put into my heart and inscribed on my mind. He, the Spirit, adds that all evidence of my evil nature will be erased from the mind of the LORD; I am redeemed in His sight.
It is essential for me to recognize that the Word is put in my heart, thus giving me the compulsion and desire to obey the Word of the LORD, and written into my mind, thus giving me the ability and will to be obedient.
