This is a book I should have read a long time ago. I have read a lot of books that had a more narrow subject matter, but it was like laying bricks before you lay down the foundation of the house. It is a pretty large book at 672 pages, but it is a must for those who want to honor God’s command to love him with all our minds.
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work too may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy Guide me then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen

1 Corinthians 3:10-15
10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— 13 each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 14 If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
12 ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it (John 14 : 12-14 – ESV)
