In modern culture we tend to think of the "mind" as a computer, an organ that stores, processes, and retrieves information. However, the biblical writers use the term “mind” to describe not just our ability to process information, but a consciousness that enables us to derive meaning and wisdom from that information. When Solomon asks for wisdom God responds, “Indeed I give you a wise and discerning mind; no one like you has been before you and no one like you shall arise after you.” (I Kings 3:12).

When Jesus calls us to love God with our “mind,” he is describing an intellectual function that leads us to spiritual meaning. To engage people’s minds in worship is to convey the truth about God with such substance and conviction that people are actually set free. Experiential Worship gatherings employ metaphor, visual imagery, and story to engage people’s minds with the truth of God’s Word. Explore these MindWorship ideas and ask God to show you how to engage your people more intellectually in worship.
