Devotion – Hebrews 8

S – For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:  I will put my laws into their minds and write them on their hearts. 

I will be their God, and they will be my people. 

 Heb 8:10 CSB

O – Commentary:  God’s change in the system is a simple one. He takes the laws which express righteousness and puts them, not in external commandments, but on inner tablets of mind and heart. Notice that two things are necessary. We must know what God’s righteous standards are and how to translate them into personal experience. The Law can tell us what the standards are. But only a changed heart will enable us to live by those standards.

The Teacher’s Commentary (1987)

A – Continue to change my heart to live by the standard in which God is calling me to live today.

R- Lord, help me to do this.
