In each one of us there is a physical heart and a spiritual heart, and the two are parallel. Physically speaking, the heart is the most important bodily organ. When the heart becomes sick we experience physical death. Spiritually speaking the heart is the most important aspect of the spiritual body. When the spiritual heart becomes sick we experience spiritual death or seperation from God.

There are many conditions of the heart, some are positive, some are negative. Proverbs 4:23 "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life." This means that we should guard our hearts like a soldier guards a city to keep out invaders. The enemy will attack, and we must stand ready. The Bible tells us that the enemy has come "to kill, steal, and destroy." Understanding the condition of your spiritual heart is important because there are a lot of things in our hearts that should not be there.

The heart attitude is a major issue for many believers. It is not the lack of ability or potential that prevents most people from making progress and enjoying fulfillment in life; it is the wrong condition of the heart; it is the wrong heart attitude.
