9/2 What is ‘the Heart’ and how does it apply to Hearing God?

Published on January 21, 2013 By Susanne

In our first post on this series ‘Calling Your Heart to Follow the Lord’, we presented an introduction to the important concepts we plan to cover during this time.  To start we, we need to investigate the fact ….that we have a heart!

A.  There are pages and pages of verses in the Bible about the heart. 

1.  The bible simply states that ‘everything comes out of the heart’ and it is the called ‘the wellspring of life’. 

The Heart is the Source of our whole being. We live out of what is in our heart.  It is the source of our actions, thoughts, motives, judgements, expectations, dreams and hopes, Romans 10:6, Hebrews 3:12, 2 Peter 2:14, Matthew 2:8, John 2:25, Proverbs. 51:10, Matt. 12:34b, Proverbs 18:21. The heart is an unconscious, hidden part of us.
