Bhagavad Gita chapter IX verse 30 Explanation

Love of God is the road to salvation for the sinful man. No matter how evil someone’s life has been, when he adopts the path of righteousness, abandoning his evil ways and worships God and Him alone, then, says Sri Krishna, such a person is to be regarded as a good man, because he has formed a holy resolution to serve God. And if he remains true in the new path, then he will soon become righteous and attain eternal peace. Bhagavan Sri Krishna answers the prayer of every sincere person. He will cleanse our heart and renew the right spirit within us.
