The Purpose of Your Heart

Your eyes are for seeing, your ears are for hearing, your heart is for loving the Lord. Whether you love Him or something else, the heart was created for the purpose of loving the Lord.
You shall love the Lord your God from your whole heart. (Mark 12:30)

The more we turn our heart to the Lord...
Whenever their heart turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (2 Corinthians 3:16)

...the more we will exercise our heart to believe the Lord...
Believe in your heart...for with the heart there is believing. (Romans 10:9-10)

...and the more our heart will be sprinkled from an evil conscience and renewed...
I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you will be clean; from all your filthiness and from all your idols I will cleanse you. I will also give you a new heart. (Ezekiel 36:25-26)

...then it will have a greater capacity to love the Lord! All spiritual experiences start with love in the heart. Every morning we must renew our heart so that we may love the Lord more and more.
