Conversion is at the center of Christ's preaching.
Conversion is something that we are called to throughout our life but it is also not something that we do on our own. A description of conversion is found in the catechism.
"This endeavor of conversion is not just a human work. It is the movement of a 'contrite heart,' drawn and moved by grace to respond to the merciful love of God who loved us first."
As we work on conversion, we allow ourselves to be molded into the image of Christ. Through the prophet Isaiah, God warns us that we should not think of it as the opposite as if God should conform to us.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways above your ways and my thoughts above your thoughts."
May God continue you to bless us and mold us into the image of His Son.
