you must be born again

y

I recently pondered on the conversion experience for myself and someone I think needs to be converted.

Something of that nature came to me when I was very young. I was raised in a Christian home with a fervently believing mother. She “led me to the Lord” when I was ten or twelve years old. Whatever doubts I had thereafter including animosity to religious faith, what I received as a child has prevailed and continues to shape my life.

I fondly remember how my mother recollected her conversion. Similarly as a young girl, she “gave her heart to the Lord.” But she had no peace of mind until she read John 6:37, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” Her testimony still rings in my heart.

I say “animosity to religious faith” because human nature and pride in self are at odds with putting your trust in the only One who truly knows who you are. It’s in the nature of everyone who has ever lived to fight against this relationship. It’s the internal dilemma we need to be converted from.

In my pondering of conversion, I came across something written by evangelist and pastor, John Woolley:

“The mystery of conversion embraces both an immediate work and a more gradual one. It may catch a person by surprise, or be so gradual that many Christians cannot recall when they were converted; especially those growing up in Christian homes. Timothy knew Scripture from a child (2 Tim. 3:15). When was he converted? John the Baptist leapt in his mother’s womb on hearing of Jesus’ birth (Luke 1:45). Was he converted then? It is one of the beautiful mysteries of the Holy Spirit’s work in salvation (John 3:8), taking nothing away from its genuineness, that some are initially unaware that they have been converted! Read Acts 19:2.”

Nevertheless, dramatic conversions are still a reality. I’d like to introduce you to one such conversion, that of Dr. James Tour. Tour is a brilliant scientist and highly accomplished man who loves Yahusha in a way almost incomprehensible for most of us . He is also an evangelist par excellence. This is a video you will be moved by and grateful for.
