The mind is the the conduit to the soul. If I desire to experience God more deeply, my feelings must be preceded by the correct understanding of who God is. True intimacy with God begins with rightly comprehending Him. God reveals himself to me and shapes my understanding of Him primarily through His word. Emotions are a wonderful and natural expression in response to the truth that has brought us into intimate relationship with God, but they are not the measuring rod of the truth itself. It is the mind conformed to God that must inform the heart, not the inverse- for emotions can be fickle and undiscerning. —Mike Steffan
