LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

True Conversion - Spurgeon

On true conversion
by Charles Spurgeon

"When the Word of God converts a man, it takes away from him his despair, but it does not take from him his repentence

True conversion gives a man pardon, but does not make him presumptuous.

True conversion gives a man perfect rest, but it does not stop his progress

True conversion gives a man security, but it does not allow him to leave off being watchful

True conversion gives a man strength and holiness, but it never lets him boast

True conversion gives a harmony to all the duties of Christian life...it balances all duties, emotions, hopes and enjoyments.

True conversion, brings a man to live for God, He does everything for the Glory of God--whether he eats, or drinks or whatsoever he does.

True conversion, makes a man live before God. He desires to live as in God's sight at all times and he is glad to be there. And such a man now comes to live with God. He has blessed communion with him; he talks with him as a man talks with his friend."

Mark, I popped over here via Rose's blog. Just wanted to say I think you're spot on in your comments. Thanks for proclaiming the truth in a very concise, intelectually honest manner.

I've enjoyed reading.
