Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
The New Covenant is so much better than the old. So many people wanting to live by the old even today. The entire book of Hebrews tells of how much better the New Covenant written in the blood of Jesus is. The point of this post is how much better it is to have a Covenant written on our hearts and minds than on stone tablets

The 10:Commandments in the Old Covenant written by Moses on Stone Tablets
Exo 34:27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
Exo 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
New Covenant to write Commands on our hearts and minds. Written by the Hand of God.
Heb 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Heb 10:15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
Heb 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
Heb 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Why the Heart and Mind?
When I meditated on this thought I came to the conclusion that God writes His commands on our minds so we know what is expected of us or what He wants from us. He writes these commands on our hearts, or inward parts so we want to do His commands. We know what pleases Him and we have the desire to do what pleases Him. God Himself writes these commands on our hearts and minds. It is all Him!
He writes His Commands on our Hearts and Minds and remembers our sins no more. Hallelujah!
