This brief study is concerned with answering the question “what is the heart” from a scriptural perspective. The heart, according to the scripture, is part of man’s spiritual makeup. It is the place where emotions and desires begin; it is that which drives the will of man towards action. The physical heart is an organ that pumps blood. Poets also have a lot to say about the heart. However, the heart of man as described in the Bible is primarily a spiritual organ that drives man’s behavior.
We know that the heart is the starting place for spiritual life because of what the Bible says about God’s actions toward the human heart. In order to get people to desire what He desires, God must “remove the heart of stone” and replace it with “a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26).
