The Mind is the Servant of the Heart

The mind is the servant of the heart. The mind serves to know the truth that fuels the fires of the heart. The highest point of glorifying God is enjoying Him with the heart. But this is only an empty emotionalism if the joy is not awakened and sustained by correct knowledge of who God is. The saddest predicament of our age is for Christians to think that using our intellect to know God is unspiritual.
