Your Mind Matters

Your mind matters.

We so often pursue outward change in our lives (behavior modification), and we forget that the inward is even there. But in reality, the inward controls the outward. And, if all we do is seek to control the outward, our progress will never last.

Your mind matters.

Jesus said the greatest command is to love God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our MIND.

Your mind matters.

Information informs behavior. We can’t truly and properly worship God without being informed about God. Theology leads to doxology. The study of God leads to worship of God. The more you know about God, the greater your worship of God can be.

Your mind matters.

Some may say, well we run the risk of having full heads and empty hearts. True. But, since when has risk been considered an appropriate excuse for not fully seeking God? The greater risk is in not knowing God and therefore not appropriately worshiping God, or worse, worshiping something other than that which theology is centered…God, which is idolatry.

Your mind matters.

“Knowledge is indispensable to Christian life and service,” says John Stott. “If we do not use the mind which God has given us, we condemn ourselves to spiritual superficiality.”

Your mind matters.

Pursue God with your mind and watch it change your life.
