"I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them."
Ezekiel 36:27 NKJV

The law, the judgements and the statutes of God cannot be obeyed fully by natural human beings. It is impossible because the flesh is weak.

That is why the old covenant failed to work because man could not fulfill his end of the bargain- obedience.

In His mercy the Lord promised a new covenant with them. In that one, God was not going to demand the flesh to obey Him, no. He said His Spirit will do the work in you.

The Holy Spirit will cause you to walk in His statutes and will cause you to do them. How marvelous!

This is the new covenant that gave birth to the new creation we are now a part of. Pleasing God is no longer a pipe dream anymore because of the Holy Spirit. 

Walking in righteousness and holiness is no longer a struggle.  There's a rest brought about by the knowledge that our relationship with God is secure through the Holy Spirit.

Since disobedience to God's dictates brought the mess we have today including sickness, dysfunction and death; the new covenant, ratified by Jesus' blood and made alive in us by the indwelling presence of the Spirit, guarantees life eternal.

The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in me guarantees life eternal.
