A Matter of the Heart

Matter of the Heart

By: Waylon Bailey ~

“The heart of every problem is the problem of the heart, and only God’s Spirit and God’s Word can change and control the heart”–Warren Wiersbe.

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?”–Jeremiah 17:9, NLT.

[Godly character] calls “us to deny ourselves, to turn from pride, greed and selfishness. Contrary to some contemporary worship, the Bible teaches that it is most definitely NOT all about me. Instead, God calls us to consider the needs of others, to share, to serve with humility. By God’s grace, we become strict and firm with ourselves, but gracious, compassionate and tender toward others. Only God could create such a beautiful mixture in one human being”–John Kincaid.

“For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness”–Mark 7:21-22.

“”We’re all tempted, whether others know it or not. Lustful thoughts, deceptive statements and actions, anything that misrepresents the truth and violates God’s word–it’s all a form of cheating. In the moment, we think that the reward of cheating will outweigh its costs.  But whether we get caught or not, we’re wrong”–Jim Denison.
