Read Jeremiah 31:31-34

When God Writes on Our Hearts

BIBLE THOUGHT: "I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts" ( Jeremiah 31:33,RSV).

SOME OF THE MAGNIFICIENT PROMISES of the new covenant were foretold by the inspired Old Testament prophets. One such promise was that the Lord would write His law upon our hearts. The ten commandments had been written on tablets of stone, but the divine principles of His new covenant would be written within his children, on tablets of the heart!

IN DUE TIME GOD CAME IN CHRIST to reconcile us to Himself. He came out of eternity to show us a perfect model to imitate, that we could be transformed into His image. The Eternal Word came and became flesh. He emptied Himself as an example of humility and selflessness and submission and obedience. He became a source of eternal salvation to all who walk after His example and obey His message!

AS THE WORD BECAME FLESH, we are also to become living epistles "a letter from Christ, 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 3:2,3).

HYMN: Tell Me the Story of Jesus.

Loving Father, help us to become your own letter, known and read by everyone we meet.
