Removing surface rust from metal

How might I go about removing rust and prepare the surface to paint? I assume painting the rust will not stop it from growing but I need to stop the rust first, but not sure how.

Thank you so much.

Sand the rusted areas until you have shiny, clean metal. Clean the area with a solvent to remove dust and any oils. Then paint with an oil based or spray can paint.
