Cleansed with a New Heart
Receiving New Heart through Faith: These verses show that, upon trusting Christ as Savior, God cleanses you by removing your old sinful nature and replacing it with a brand new heart. You are now completely free from sin in your born again heart (Romans 6:18). This is what allows Christ to join eternally as one to you in your inner spirit. But, your outer mortal body is still dead because of sin (Romans 8:10a); it awaits a future redemption (Romans 8:23b). Note: "spirit," "heart" and "nature" all mean the same thing.
