About The Road to Union Series

The new creation exists in union with Jesus and the Father—a fact. Yet the road to union isn't based on attainment, but revelation and realization.

Devotional

Romans 7:22 NASB
For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man…

A law is something that is always in operation. Being a LAW, it is binding and in force at all times. A law rules. Always.

The Law of God is Written on the Heart

Paul knew the Law of the Torah, but he met the Law of God in a new way. On the Damascus Road, the Law had entered his being in receiving Christ. Paul could not escape the Holy Law because it was now written in his heart, seared in his thinking. The standard of God was within him now, always in operation, judging his thoughts and motives, from the hidden-inside.

Hebrews 8:10 NASB
I will put My laws into their minds,
And I will write them on their hearts.
And I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.
