God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
3 Powerful truths about our hearts we MUST comprehend:
1. Comprehend there is a battle for your heart.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.
1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
2. We must learn to live from a healed heart.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
3. Believe your heart is good because of Jesus’ sacrifice.
Hebrews 10:14, 22
For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy…
Therefore… let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
