PREPARING YOUR MIND

09132015-Sunday


“Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior” (1Peter 1:13-15).

The development of the mind is a vital part of the Christian experience.  If ultimate Truth is to be found, known, and proven in the life of Christ then philosophical integrity requires that all knowledge comes from Him and all knowledge leads to Him.  This conviction provides a basis for curiosity, creativity, and an energy toward learning; a framework for pondering all knowledge. Only Christianity offers an arena for the complexity and open-mindedness required for true learning.  Secularism is bound and limited by human capacity.  Christianity’s pursuit of Truth is boundless under the sovereignty of God who, himself, is creative, mysterious, and longs to be discovered.

Think about it.
