“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.”
- Proverbs 25:2
There is no greater expression of our unique status as God’s image-bearers than to ask questions and search for answers. In fact, Jesus says the greatest commandment is to love God with all our hearts, souls, strength and minds (Matthew 22:37). When we do so all we do takes on new meaning and significance. Furthermore, as we “think Christianly” we find ways to articulate and embody God’s truth, grace and peace for all people, bringing “shalom” and human flourishing to those around us.
Unfortunately, loving God with our minds has fallen on hard times these days. For a number of reasons this aspect of the “greatest commandment” has received little attention in many of our churches.
I often have the opportunity to speak on issues related to loving God with our minds. The questions that most often arise are:
What is the relationship between loving God with my mind and growing in my relationship with Christ?
How can I “think Christianly” about what I do at work each day?
What are some biblical principles that can help me understand and respond well to issues discussed in the media, on Facebook or in my community?
How can I help my children or grandchildren prepare to “think Christianly” during their college years?
How do I respond to objections to the Faith raised by my friend, neighbor or coworker?
I am regularly asked if I have a blog that discusses these and other issues of loving God with our minds. Until now I have not. So I’ve decided to start.

Mercan is a university student living in a small town in the Middle East where Christians are persecuted. She recently told her Global Scholars professor that because of how Christians loved her she was "done with Islam" andwanted to become a follower of Jesus. Her Global Scholars professor was able to lead her to saving faith in Christ.
She is just one of thousands of students impacted by a Global Scholars professor this year. Your support helps bring His love and truth to so many students like Mercan.
we thank you for helping Global Scholars grow to
108 Christian professors
21,000 students worldwide this year!
