2. If I believe in my heart then my actions will correspond with my belief.
B. The heart is like a reservoir from which our lives flow.
1. My mouth, my hands and feet are the pipes through which my life flows to others.
2. If the reservoir is polluted that which flows out from me shall be polluted.
3. Here is a man from whom pollution flows.
a. "It's a matter of environment, we must change his environment."
1. Change all of the pumps.

c. Sow to the Spirit.
d. Read the Word, hear the Word. Get food records, censor your TV watching.
C. Keep your heart peaceful.
