Summary: This is a new variation on the old saying "Mind over Matter": What;s on your mind changes everything that matters!

New variation on ‘MIND OVER MATTER’

“What’s on your mind changes everything that matters”

‘Heart’ is the mind, will, intellect

‘Issues of life’ – source, boundary,

deliverance of life

It controls:

I. What We Say (vs. 24)

A. Matthew 12:34, “for out of the abundance of

the heart the mouth speaketh.”

B. Matthew 15:18-19, “But those things which

proceed out of the mouth come from the heart,

and they defile a man. For out of the heart

proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries,

fornications, thefts, false witness,


II. What We See (vs. 25)

A. 2 Peter 2:14, “having eyes full of adultery

and that cannot cease from sin, enticing

unstable souls.”

B. 1 John 2:16, “For all that is in the world—the

lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and

the pride of life—is not of the Father but is

of the world.”

III. What We Serve (vs. 26)

A. Proverbs 23:6, “As a man thinks in his heart,

so is he”

B. Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is,

there will your heart be also.”

How do we ‘Guard our Heart’? (vs. 27)

‘Remove’ your foot from evil – ‘snatch away’

2 Timothy 2:22, “Flee also youthful lusts: but follow

righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

Galatians 5:16 - makes the difference between

a. Works of the Flesh (Gal. 5:19-21)

b. Fruit of the Spirit (Ga. 5:22-23)

How do we appropriate the Spirit’s fullness?

Luke 11:13, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”
