“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”
In our modern use of the word heart, we tend to think of it as something that encompasses our emotions. We might say, “My mind tells me to do one thing, but my heart tells me to do another.”
We tend to think of the heart as the emotional aspect of our lives, what we might call our gut reaction. But in ancient times, that is not what the heart referred to. The heart spoke of the mind and of understanding.
