Hebrews 9:19-28 - Jesus speaks about, to, and concerning the heart throughout his ministry. Is this a change from the seemingly commandment-heavy God of the Old Testament. Nope. In fact, God's always aimed at our hearts in order to not only change our behavior from destructiveness to healthy and change our destiny from death to life, but also to simply bring us to Him in relationship. Jesus' death purifies our hearts so that we can freely do what we were made to do.
