If I want to love God more, I have to know Him more deeply. The more I search the Scriptures, and the more I focus my mind’s attention on who God is and what He does, the more I understand just a tiny little bit about that, the more my soul breaks out in flame. The greater ardor I have to honor Him, and that that understanding of the mind—the more I understand God with the mind, the more I love Him with my mind. What does it mean to love with the mind? It’s to hold in high esteem. To think about God with reverence and with adoration because the more we love God with our minds the more we’ll be driven to do that other thing that is alien to us in our fallen condition, and that is to worship Him.
