THE HEART OF MAN 1.

There are many people with troubled hearts in the world today. There are many reasons why these hearts are troubled. Whatever the reason, we can be assured that God knows and stands waiting to give peace to every troubled heart who will come to Him in faith. God loves you and wants to live in your heart.
The heart of man as used in this account means the seat of man’s affections, or the “real you.” The things that you are doing spring from your heart.
God, the creator, created man in the very beginning. He intended for man to happily live and serve Him in the beauty garden of Eden.
Something happened to spoil God’s plan. The devil, whom we call Satan, hates God. He caused man to doubt and man chose to disobey God. Because of this, man’s heart became evil and sinful. No longer could he have the communion with God that surpassed other joys. His heart became deceitful and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9). Man was separated from God.
Because of His great love, God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for man’s sin. New hope is offered to every person. God want to dwell in each man’s heart and someday take the saved to live with Him in His beatiful dwelling place called Heaven. He has decreed that no sin will ever enter there.
Sin is any thought ,attitude, action, or belief that is contrary to Gods’s will. These defile man’s heart. God not only looks on man’s outside, but sees into his heart. Nothing is hidden from God. He commands all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30). If this command is disregarded, man will be cast into the lake of unquenchable fire called hell (Matthew 25:41).
Our sins must be repented of, confessed, and forgiven. Then God creates a new heart within us that loves and serves Him. His Spirit no longer convicts man from the outside him. And finally, when our lives on earth are completed, God will receive us to Himself.
