Notable Quotable: “Neglecting the Heart Leads to the Spreading Nature of Sin” – Joe Thorn

heart-cross[1]

“One way we neglect the heart is by dealing with our sin on the level of doing instead of being. Addressing your behavior without addressing the heart will lead to a sanctification as thin as a Christian t-shirt. In fact, by neglecting the heart you leave yourself exposed to the sticky and spreading nature of sin. “Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” (James 1:15, ESV) Sin that remains unchecked will gain ground in your life. And to check it means to hit it at the heart level.”

(Joe Thorn, “The Danger of Heart Neglect” , JoeThorn.net)
