The Doctor: Believe In Your Innermost Citadel

[I]n the vast majority of instances, the word heart in Scripture means the centre, the very innermost citadel, of the personality.  Or, if you like, it means the whole personality.  So when the Scripture says that with heart we believe that God has raised Him from the dead, it means that with the whole of our being we believe that.  ‘With the heart man believeth unto righteousness’: with the whole of his personality, not merely his feelings, not merely his intellect, but the totality of everything that he is.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 10, p. 14
