Purity of Heart: The Moral Life

A New Covenant of Love

" I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah.  It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers. 
I will place my law within them and write it upon their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people"
(Jeremiah 31: 31-33)
