To be converted, you need to “Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit” (Ezekiel 18:31). You can do that by cooperating with the work of the Holy Spirit to receive that change of heart you need.
Fix your eyes on Jesus because conversion happens when we behold Him “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
You can learn about God through His Word. His love will spark your love for Him “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not” (1 John 3).
And also pray every day, even if you don’t feel like it. Prayer is the breath of life. Talk to God for He is your heavenly Father and claim His promise for a new heart, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7). The more time you spend with the Lord the more your relationship with get stronger in Him.
Then, God promises you, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes” (Ezekiel 36:26, 27). Only God can activate the miracle of conversion. Without Him our nature can’t change.
Finally, witness about God’s love and what He has done in your life. The Bible says, “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
