“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. - Matthew 22:36-38
It’s never too late to begin loving God with all your mind. Pray for the mind of Christ, and consider these four ideas to stay engaged:
1. Keep asking questions
Learning in community is the best way to learn. This is fellowship and discipleship.
2. Continue your education
Challenge yourself.The bible is deep and has no bottom! Drink deeply from the Word of God.
3. Learn outside your comfort zone
We will drift into comfort, but schedule discomfort. Change is good!
4. Learn from life
Life is a school all unto itself seen through God's heart, eyes, and mind.
Stretch your minds, but don’t become information addicts.
It's not about memorizing facts, but attaining Godly wisdom. Be deliberate and passionate about the work you are doing for the Lord (which is everything).
Be wise today and always - renew your mind and grow in wisdom.
