“Furthermore, we must never consider that our fight against sin is at an end. The heart is unsearchable, our evil desires are insatiable, and our reason is constantly in danger of being deceived. Well did Jesus say, ‘Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation’ (Matthew 26:41). And Solomon warned us, ‘Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life’ (Proverbs 4:23)”–Jerry Bridges.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me”–Psalm 51:10.
“I lose my sense of hopelessness because I can say to myself that not only am I no longer under the dominion of sin, but I am under the dominion of another power that nothing can frustrate. However weak I may be, it is the power of God that is working in me”–Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
“For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man”–Mark 7:21-23.
“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more”–Jeremiah 31:33-34.
