Glorifying God with Heart & Mind

what you think“… And if we are to glorify God fully, we must engage our mind in knowing Him truly and loving Him duly… The apex of glorifying God is enjoying Him with the heart. But this is an empty emotionalism where that joy is not awakened and sustained by true views of God for who He really is.”

John Piper, “Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God”
