Energize Your Mind

By Pastor Peter Mueller

This last weekend, my message was called Energize Your Mind as we reflected on the biblical call to love God with our whole being, including our minds. Jesus said the greatest commandment is “Love the Lord your God with all your heat and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37) St. Paul calls us to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). The main point of this week’s message was “what you THINK shapes who you ARE today and who you BECOME tomorrow - so SEEK OUT and ENGAGE CONTENT that SHAPES YOU to THINK LIKE GOD.” I then shared a number of resources to help you think more deeply about your faith and how it connects to the rest of life - as a reminder, please find below a complete list of those resources for your perusal and enrichment, including links to all resources available online. My challenge to you is to choose even ONE of these many resources and dig into it this week as a way to “love God with your mind”. I think you’ll be glad you did!

In His Strength and Peace,

Pastor Peter
