Jeremiah declares that it’s not about following the rules slavishly. It’s about knowing God's teachings so intimately, knowing where they came from and how they liberate us from bondage into freedom, that we’ve taken them into ourselves. We’ve learned them so well that we know them by heart. The image and discipline of God’s amazing liberation beats inside of us.
