converted is to have an understanding heart, ears
that hear, and eyes that
see. It is a genuine desire to love, obey,
and believe God. Conversion is
putting sin out of our lives.
Isa 6:10 "Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed."
Col 3:9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
Mat 18:3 and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
As the following scripture shows, to be converted means that we must have God's Holy Spirit of power. When Christ spoke these words to the disciples they already had the earnest of the Spirit.
Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."
