Loving God With Your Mind (+ Signs & Wonders)

(Downtown Monroe)
I like this quote from John Rankin on loving God with not only our hearts and souls but also our minds, with signs and wonders following behind.

“Apart from Jesus as Son of God and Son of Man, the three most powerful men in the Bible are Moses, Daniel, and Paul. In each case they a) knew the Hebrew Scriptures inside out, b) they knew the pagan political cultures in which they lived inside out, c) they knew the pagan religions in those cultures inside out, and d) they were folowed by signs and wonders. These were robust men, compromising nothing in the pursuit of wisdom and character, loving the Lord their God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. And Jesus their Messiah fulfilled and transcended all they pursued.” (In A Faith and Culture Devotional, 47)
