Romans 2:28-29 The Passion Translation (TPT)
28 You are not a Jew if it’s only superficial—for it’s more than the surgical cut of a knife that makes you Jewish. 29 But you are Jewish because of the inward act of spiritual circumcision—a radical change that lays bare your heart. It’s not by the principle of law,[a] but by power of the Holy Spirit. For then your praise will not come from people, but from God himself!
