do it the right way....cause i have to run to bed....but from what I have studied....and dunno if this lines up with your beliefs....is that conversion is the work of the Holy Spirit.
This is why repentance...true fervent repentance...must come first....for His Spirit cannot and is not compatible with sin ......anyhow....just a quick point i wanted to add....
have a good week.
Sandy: I have a couple of very important questions for you to really think about to ask youself that might put some light on what you just said.
Do we really do anything without our having both God and ourselves involved at the same time, to bring something righteous in our lives to come to pass to begin with?
Some try to do things they think might work to do so without God being involved at all, true. But is it not only vanity at work when we do anything by ourselves to bring about holiness without HIM?
But will He do anything without our doing what He tells us to do to receive whatever it is He has promised to do at that time, that we are doing in faith, believing and wanting to receive whatever it is we have been promised to receive from Him either?
In other words, even then, does it not take two to tango? Each doing their own step at the time, not being able to dance alone.
think about it anyway. OK.
And also consider what vanity actually is too.
Love ya much,
