Matthew 18 Verse 3: “’assure you,’ He said, ‘unless you are converted’ and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’.”
True conversion involves your mind, your emotions and your will.
Many people have intellectually converted to Christ, they believe what the Bible says, but they have never really been converted in their hearts, the fabric of their beings.
Conversion simply means ‘To Be Changed” changed from our old ways to new ways His purposes for our lives.
Could be people say, ‘I believe but I want to keep’, But if we are truly converting we are entering into a Covenant relationship with Our Lord, Our Redeemer and Our Friend. There is nothing about us, that could ever measure up, for all He has for us.
Converted, are Covenant entering people. Truly converted people love the good they once hatred and hate the sin they once loved. Changed, changed, changed from the inside out.
Child like stepping in to God, with ultimate trust believing that Our Father has plans and purpose and destiny for our lives.
1 John 3 Verse 1: “So now, little children, remain in Him, so that when He appears we may have boldness and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”
Concerted people have a gratitude to God, a dependence on Him, and a trust in the knowing how much He loves us.
Conversion is not making us into robotic people, it is turning us back to what we are created for complete relationship with Him, and dependence on Him
Jeremiah 29 verse 11: Because He has plans for us.
