For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.” Luke 12:34
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 12:34

O Jerusalem, wash your heart from evil, that you may be saved. How long shall your wicked thoughts lodge within you?
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 8:21
You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Jeremiah 22:17
But you have eyes and heart only for your dishonest gain, for shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence.” Isaiah 33:6
and he will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion’s treasure.
