7 steps a convert has to take on the road: The HIGHWAY of Gods GRACE

stair to heaven

We are not carried on this road. This justification does not happen automatically, but we must go this Way of the Cross voluntarily, although we will be led by His Spirit (see Romans 8:14).

Step 1: We must believe:

  • in the accomplished work (His death/resurrection) for us;
  • that He (His Spirit) is almighty to share His victory with us;
  • in the preached/spoken Word of the Cross (see Romans 3:21-26).

Step 2: We must meet Him/go to Him (see Matthew 11:28-30, Isaiah 1:18)

Step 3: We must receive Him in our hart /life in order for Him to work His accomplished work in us through the washing in His blood: through His baptism with His fire (see Matthew 3:11-12, Revelation 3:20).

Step 4: We must be willing to die to our old sinful nature (see Luke 9:23-25, Malachi 3:1-3, 1 Peter 2:24).

Step 5: We must hunger/thirst for the NEW LIFE[1], the Christ-like nature, the Godly nature, He wants to give to us until (we reach) perfection (see Matthew 5:6, Philippians 3:10-14, 2 Peter 1:3-4, Ephesians 4:13).

Step 6: We must follow Him obediently on this road (see John 3:36).

Step 7: We must separate ourselves from all sin and temptation and must be willing to walk circumspectly in this world (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 2 Corinthians 7:1, Luke 1:17).
