Conversion Explored #1
Biblical conversion is more than professing belief. It’s not reciting a creed. It’s not merely praying a prayer or walking an aisle or raising your hand. It’s not reaching a certain age, attending a class, or passing through some other rite of adulthood. It’s not a decision you made in the past, and it’s not a journey. Conversion is turning with our whole lives from self-justification to Christ’s justification, from self-rule to God’s rule, from idol worship to God worship. Conversion is God’s work in us. It’s being brought from darkness into light. It’s being made new, not merely nice.
