The Bible refers to conversion as a process. It begins at a specific point in a person’s life and continues to maturity in Christ (Acts 9). The Bible also portrays conversion as an act of returning to Christ(Jeremiah 15:19; Zechariah 1: 3; Malachi 3:7; Luke 15:4). In the Old and New Testaments God appeals to His people to return unto Him, and He will return unto them. These verses imply an initial turning towards God and gradual turning away from God. God takes the initiative to reclaim His former people unto Himself. He gives them the impulse to return unto Him. The ministry of reconciliation is an initiative of God.
