The Soul Winner - notes from chapter 1

Signs (or "effects") that conversion has taken place:

1. Regeneration will be shown in conviction of sin.

"God never clothes men until He has first stripped them, nor does He quicken them by the gospel till first they are slain by the law. " (page 19)
2. Exhibition of a simple faith in Jesus Christ. (page 20)

3. Unfeigned repentance of sin (page 21)

4. A real change in life. (page 23)

5. True prayer.

"The Holy Ghost's evidence by which He convinced Ananias of
Paul's conversion was not, 'Behold, he talks loudly of his joys and
feelings,' but 'Behold, he prayeth.' " (page 23-24)

6. Willingness to obey the Lord in all His commandments. (page 24)
