Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,
when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts
3:19). In the great and mysterious work of salvation there clearly is a
human as well as a divine side. We do err whenever we ignore one and
emphasize the other, or when we fail to teach each side in proper balance
with the other. To the human side we look in this message. Dr. A H.
Strong wrote, Conversion is that voluntary change in the mind of the sinner,
in which he turns, on the one hand, from sin, and on the other hand, to
Christ. The former or negative element in conversion, namely the turning
from sin, we denominate repentance. The latter or positive element in
conversion, namely, the turning to Christ, we denominate faith ..... Conversion
is the human side or aspect of that fundamental spiritual change which,
as viewed from the divine side, we call regeneration (Systematic Theology,
p. 829).
