Some phrases you might have said are, “Put your heart into it. They were heartbroken. Invite Jesus into your heart.” We’re not referring to your physical heart that pumps blood. We’re talking about the seat of your spiritual life. That heart is just as important as your physical one. It’s what controls our actions and guides our decisions. That’s why the Bible refers to this heart so much. God gave us this seat of power and the free will to choose who sits there and controls it. Whats decided in our heart is reflected in our life. The Bible tells us several things we need to make sure we choose to do with our heart so that we will serve God with our whole life.
Here are some Bible verses on the heart.
1. Let the inner movement of your heart always be to love one another, and never play the role of an actor wearing a mask. Despise evil and embrace everything that is good and virtuous.
Romans 12:9 TPT
2. You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right side of God.
Colossians 3:1 GNT
3. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.
Matthew 12:35 NLT
4. Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23 AMP
5. Move your heart closer and closer to God, and he will come even closer to you. But make sure you cleanse your life, you sinners, and keep your heart pure and stop doubting.
James (Jacob) 4:8 TPT
