Last week I heard someone speaking about total conversion. He suggested that we need a conversion of our mind, emotion, and our will. I like that.
I think that it is easy to speak of being saved or born again as something that you believe in your mind. This is true, but belief is not just a belief in the mind. Salvation is intellectional. But it is also emotional and volitional.
If we only have a intellectual conversion, then we may find ourself to be like the soil in the parable of the sower that sees the seed choked out when the cares of the world make life difficult. We must allow our conversion to invade our mind, our emotion, and our will. As Romans 12:1 says we must be living sacrifices. Transformation must be all of us, not just a part.
Has your will been converted? Do the emotions of your inmost being proclaim that Jesus is Lord? How complete is your conversion?
