In studying this each day. I conclude that Imagination is the connector between mind/heart giving us images, pictures, revelation – in essence, bringing heaven to earth. The mind and the heart, working together.
The Greeks thought that the mind was rational and good, discounting the heart/emotions as being less superior. As Christians, we know better as our salvation is wholly in Christ without separation and fragmentation. The mind/heart is as one and as Greg Boyd points out: The mind is the thinking side of the heart. The heart is the feeling side of the mind.
Discernment keeps us focused on Christ in the power of Holy Spirit and does not lead us astray into error. Christian imagination – pictures and images formed in our mind/heart and as our lives are surrendered to Christ Jesus. Our minds are renewed and being renewed and our hearts are turned to behold the One we love in all His glory…………the veil is lifted off in Christ and off we go in complete freedom of expression and thought of heaven now
I am starting out on this journey wholly focused on this subject in all ways. I don’t throw the baby out with the bath water simply because the new age has adopted visualization techniques. How absurd!
So excited! This has always been in my mind/heart but timing is everything.It is time now to raise up a creative force in the Body of Christ. How? One step at a time. When? Now.
