Keeping it Real – Great Commandment
Part 2- Love Jesus with all your mind

• The Great Commandment underlays our Church Vision/. Know Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength…. Then we can make Him Known
• Our mind is a very powerful thing. It is the place where we think about things. How we think about God. Who He is. What He is like. What He thinks of us. The renewed mind plays a vital role in loving Jesus. The Lord said that if we are ever going to understand the Kingdom our minds need to be constantly renewed (Matt. 4:17). In Romans 12:2 Paul states that a major part of being transformed into the image and likeness of Jesus must require our minds being renewed. It’ a big deal. With our minds we reason, we make choices and it is the centre of creativity and imagination

• 1. REASON/Intellect: Thoughts
• 2. Understanding/Wisdom- A. W. Tozer once said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
• 3. Memorial stones of remembrance- Isaiah 63:7 “I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us.”
• 4. IMAGINATION/Creativity
• Psa. 8:3 “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;”
• Isa. 55:8 “My thoughts are completely different from yours,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”
