“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”
These words, given to the prophet Ezekiel in Babylon, promised future restoration for the exiles to the land of Israel. A new spirit would cause them to obey his word with heart and soul. When that happens, God can truly own his people.
