John writes, “Brethren, I am not writing a new commandment to you that never previously existed, but an old commandment which you were having from a beginning…On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you that never previously existed, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is shining already” (1 John 2:7-8, Lavender's New Testament). The old commandment is to give God rule over one's life and to obey his moral law. The new commandment is to enter the school of the Holy Spirit. This is possible only when you have been changed inwardly (born from above). Once enrolled, a person is no longer enticed to sin because the law of God is written on the heart. Jesus becomes the prime love and pursuit of the soul, and the Christian seeks the royal authority of God over his or her life, and God's righteousness. Is this your present experience?
