The Spirit of the Law is Inscribed inside Man’s Heart
Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. (2 Corinthians 3:3 KJV)
This scripture verse is contrasting the old covenant given by God to Moses written on tablets of stone against the new covenant which is delicately written upon the heart of man.
This verse contrasts the spiritual difference between scripture written in stone by the finger of God against those truths etched upon the heart of mankind. One appeared in physical form and was given to Moses as letters carved upon stone. The other is delicately written upon the fleshly soul of all mankind.
Each person has intimate knowledge of God engraved upon his heart and the child of God has invited in the very presence of God to work and will in his heart. God’s presence spiritually matures producing a succulent harvest of fruit flowing outward to affect other persons in his midst.
The law of God embedded in the heart of an ungodly person produces a set of complex laws which cannot be successfully met or kept in man’s own strength. This serves to capture the devilish nature of his heart like a mirror.
