Ezekiel 36:26-27
26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.


36:26–27 God’s initiative moves from external to internal with the gift of a new heart and new spirit (see 11:19; cf. 18:31). The outer purification will be no use without the inner disposition to live rightly before God (36:27). The connection of “water” (v. 25) and “Spirit” (v. 27) lies behind John 3:5. I will put my Spirit within you predicts an effective inward work of God in the “new covenant.”
36:27 The promise of the Holy Spirit is fulfilled at Pentecost (Acts 2:1–21) and in the giving of the Spirit to those who believe in Christ (Rom. 8:9–17).


  • We've received such a positive response to this series on the Holy Spirit. Many people say they haven't heard much teaching on who the Holy Spirit is and what He does and that they are learning a lot the past two weeks. What have you learned so far about the Holy Spirit that was surprising to you?

  • Ezekiel 36 prophesies about the New Covenant. He says that God will give us a new heart and put His Spirit in us. He will take out our hard, stoney hearts and replace them with hearts that are tender and responsive to Him... a heart that is open to God that will move us follow and obey and worship Him. Do you remember the time when God took out your heart of stone and replaced it with a soft, receptive heart? How did your heart change when you were saved? How did your wants, desires and priorities change?


  • That you would seek to know more of the Holy Spirit.
  • That He would continue to soften your heart.

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory!

7. How can I trust that the Bible is still God’s Word today? I trust the Bible is still God’s Word today because Jesus rose from the dead proving He was God and said His words would never pass away. Through the Holy Spirit, God inspired the writing of the Scripture, determined the canon of Scripture and protected the copying of Scripture so that we might know Him and worship Him to this day.
(Matthew 24:35; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:16-21; Revelation 22:18-19)
