Approach: Reading several passages to understand what God means, "I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts."

Hermeneutic objective: Integrating your observations from the Old and New Testaments.

Theological objective: God explains this as He reveals parts of the New Covenant:

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. (Ezek 36:26-27, ESV).

God intended the statement "I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts" as "writing it on their heart, mind and soul" in a manner that encompasses the whole person as God said "within them."

With the help of the indwelling Holy Spirit, the Believer learns God’s word and reappraises his worldview and facts about life to include the reality of God, the nature of sin, and His Son who came to atone for mankind's sin.

By sanctifying one's mind, the Believer learns what the will of God is, and what is good, acceptable, and perfect.

When one cooperates with the Holy Spirit, the Believer produces the fruit of the Spirit – character traits that result when a Believer cooperates with the Holy Spirit by learning and living God's word.

If you don’t exhibit these character traits, then you know you have to improve your cooperation with the Holy Spirit and spend more time reading and meditating God's word.
