    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

    A Mind That Loves God

    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind.
    Luke 10:27

    In his book, Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God, John Piper wrote, "The main reason God has given us minds is that we might seek out and find all the reasons that exist for treasuring Him in all things and above all things. He created the world so that through it and above it we might treasure Him. … Thinking is a God-given means to that end." 1

    The Bible constantly refers to keeping our minds sound and sharp for Christ, of having the mind of Christ, of being transformed by the renewing of our minds, and of having our thoughts stayed on God and fixed on Jesus.


    Evil thoughts grow in our minds like weeds, but we can cultivate wholesome thoughts with Bible meditation and judicious reading. Choose a healthy diet for your mind. Replace evil thoughts with memorized Scripture. True Christianity is never anti-intellectual; and growing Christians don't idle their minds in neutral. Love the Lord your God with all your mind.

    Loving God with the mind means that our thinking is wholly engaged to do all it can to awaken and express the heartfelt fullness of treasuring God above all things.
