What Is the Heart?

Both in the Old Testament and New Testament the word "heart" refers to the center of an individual's mental, emotional, and spiritual life. It's the innermost part of man. The heart reflects the real person.

As the mental center, the heart knows, understands, reflects, considers, and remembers.

As the emotional center, it is the seat of joy, courage, pain, anxiety, despair, sorrow, love, and fear.

As the moral center, God tries the heart, sees the heart, refines the heart, searches the heart.
