Heart

Additional Links

The heart is often referred to in scripture as the seat of the affections and of the passions, also of wisdom and understanding — hence we read of 'the wise in heart,' also the Lord gave to Solomon 'a wise and understanding heart.' It is the centre of a man's being. But before the deluge God's verdict of man was that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Genesis 6:5 . A similar verdict is found in Genesis 8:21 , after Noah came out of the ark. And the Lord said, Out of the heart of man proceed evil thoughts and every form of wickedness. Mark 7:21 . The law required man to love God with all his heart. The reception of the gospel must be in the heart, Romans 10:9; and God enables a hearer to receive the good news in 'an honest and good heart,' upon which there is fruit. Luke 8:15 . In new creation there is a 'pure heart,' the Christian being led by the Holy Spirit. 1 Timothy 1:5; 2 Timothy 2:22; 1 Peter 1:22 .
