True Conversion
by Charles Spurgeon
True Conversion

    When the Word of God converts a person, it takes away from him his despair but not his repentance.

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

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

    True conversion gives a man perfect rest but does not stop his progress (growth).

    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 the glory of God, to live before God, and to live with God.
