Ezekiel 11:14-20 (ESV)


14 And the word of the Lord came to me:
15 “Son of man, your brothers, even your brothers, your kinsmen, the whole house of Israel, all of them, are those of whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Go far from the Lord; to us this land is given for a possession.’
16 Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Though I removed them far off among the nations, and though I scattered them among the countries, yet I have been a sanctuary to them for a while in the countries where they have gone.’
17 Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: I will gather you from the peoples and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.’
18 And when they come there, they will remove from it all its detestable things and all its abominations.
19 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh,
20 that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

God says he will gather his people in Jerusalem and give them new hearts.  God will give them his Spirit.   God gave his Spirit after Jesus went to Heaven.   The Spirit will give us obedience over time.  Faith leads people to love people. Little by little over the years the Spirit will make you Holy if you repent and forgive people.
