It seems to me that there are those that gain the "mind of God" but miss the heart of God. They minister truth, but they do so very often in a harsh and critical spirit and misrepresent the God that they claim to have come to know.
Then, there are those that gain the "heart of God" but miss the mind of God. They minister love, but they do so very often in an overly tolerant spirit that misrepresents the holy, loving God that they claim to have come to know.
We desperately need both the mind and the heart of God, not only to experience the fullness of His holy love but also to express the fullness of His holy love, so that we can more completely represent Who He really is to those who desperately need Him so much. We desperately need to be made whole, which by the way is what the word "saved" - "sozo" = really means.
"sozo" = to return to wholeness.
Wholeness will only fully occur within us as we more completely comprehend fully Who He is to us and who we have become in Him.
Jesus came to bring us GRACE, but also to bring us TRUTH.
Jesus came to bring us His LOVE but also His MIND!
Oh, how we need the Holy Spirit to help us know... REALLY KNOW not only the mind of God but the heart of God, so we can become and minister wholeness through the Person and Work of Jesus!
