Holy Spirit in the Covenant

And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. And you will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God.

Contrast Between the Old and New Covenant
The covenant of grace is far better than the covenant of works, for it is founded upon a better principle. The old covenant was founded on the principle of merit.
