      • Ancient writers saw the inward self reflected in the heart
      • The Greeks saw it as the source of all motivation
      • Even today we see the heart as the innermost desire
      • The Bible reveals the same
    • The Bible gives a map to the heart
    • God looks directly into your heart
      • Is it right with Him?
    • Only God and You can judge your heart
    Matt 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also Matt 12:34 "Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. 1 Kings 8:39 "then hear in heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive, and act, and give to everyone according to all his ways, whose heart You know (for You alone know the hearts of all the sons of men), Proverbs 14:10 The heart knows its own bitterness
    • Obeying the Gospel is NOT a matter of:
      • The preacher
      • The lesson
      • The Word (which is perfect)
      • The means of transmission
    • It is a matter of the HEART of the hearer
      • Matthew 13:18-23
    • The POWER of the Gospel is Christ, but the EFFECT is based purely on the heart
    Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart,
  • Matthew 13:14-15 "And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.'
    • Working in fellowship is a matter of the heart
      • I Timothy 1:3-5
    • Gathering in fellowship is a matter of the heart
      • Hebrews 10:22
    • Serving your brother is a matter of the heart
      • II Cor. 8:16
      • Matthew 18:35
    1 Timothy 1:3-5 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart , from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water….25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves togeter 2 Cor. 8:16 But thanks be to God who puts the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus. Matt. 18:35 "So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses."
  • Matthew 9:36-38 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
    • Some lie in their heart, that when the time is right they will repent of sin
    • The ability AND willingness to abstain from sin is a matter of the heart
    Luke 12:19-20 'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.“’ "But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?' Romans 2:5-8 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who "will render to each one according to his deeds“: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness--indignation and wrath
  • Jeremiah 17:9-10 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.”
