There is a resolution—and only one—to the problem of the human heart that is hardened to, and unresponsive to its Creator; it is His, and His, alone.
“A new heart also will I give you; and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.” Ezekiel 36:26-27
“And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. Jeremiah 24:6-8
These are the promises of our God, the Almighty Creator and sustainer of all His creation, especially His people.
“I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from Me. Jeremiah 32:40
With the new heart comes a new warranty—an everlasting covenant for life. The original covenant with Adam depended on his own obedience to the covenant. It only proved that man couldn’t live alone; we cannot live without the daily presence and power of God. Life no longer depends on our working to sustain the covenant of life in ourselves, but on our trust and faith in what He has promised to do in us through His Son, Jesus Christ, and the power of His Holy Spirit.
“I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts,
and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Hebrews 8:10
The warranty is written on the new heart, and so it can never be lost. And we can never be lost to God. The new heart is registered in heaven.
“Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself.”
And this is the testimony, (the warranty) that God gave us eternal life,
and this life is in His Son.
Whoever has the Son has life;
Whoever does not have the Son does not have life.”
1 John 5:10-12
