To be converted is to make a decision to turn away from sin and darkness, from the power of the devil, and turn toward the living God. We repent from our former sins, stop with our old way of living – where we enjoyed living in sin – and get a new mind where we make a firm decision to say “No” to sin (say “No” in temptation). It is also important, after we are converted, that we don’t go back to the places and people which had a bad influence on us before we got converted, otherwise things can go badly again. (Acts 3:19; Acts 26:18; Ephesians 4:22-24; 1 Peter 2:1-2.)
