Thinking God’s thoughts after him…

Lutheran Christian Johannes Kepler, discoverer of the elliptical orbits of planets, when asked why he did science, is credited with replying that in scientific research he could “think God’s thoughts after him.” Thinking God’s thoughts after him is worship. Likewise, taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ is worship. Worshiping with your mind and heart wide awake to the wonder of redeeming love is the only way for a boy to grow up into a true man of God.

Douglas Bond, from Stand Fast In the Way of Truth, p. 35
