Two further signs of true conversion are often most evident in a new believer - turning to God and obedience to Him. However, it is possible for these signs to be outward only, for example, in many of the Pharisees. But if these signs are present and not merely outward, they clearly can only flow from a changed and circumcised heart. This is a work of the Holy Spirit. The true believer will experience a change in attitude towards the Law - loving it for its standard of perfection and what it reveals about God. Furthermore, they will endeavor to keep these commandments out of love for God.
