In this video, Michael Reeves explains how seminary students can cultivate both a mind and affections for God.
Jonathan Edwards talked about there being both heat and light in the Christian life. And students of theology will tend to fall off the horse in one or two directions. They’ll value the devotional heat of the Christian life without the light of God’s truth in forming it, or they can be truth lovers who don’t see how that truth will work out in their lives and work out in zealous devotion to God. A rounded formation for theological students needs both the light of God’s Word and for that light to so transform the student that they are put on fire for God. A student would be wise to think which way they tend to fall down. Do they ignore the light or the heat?
