There’s such an incredible feeling when you first come to know Christ as your Lord and Savior.  Do you remember the date?  I do!  I remember feeling so much different than I did even just moments before.  I felt that there was such a burden that had been lifted off of me.  For once, I actually didn’t feel alone.  I felt the real presence of God as if He were just holding me.

The older I became, and the more I actually matured in Christ, I began to really learn what the relationship between my heavenly Father and I was all about.  I learned that it was not like making my parents or my teachers in school proud of all my accomplishments.  With Christ, I was making a difference to someone who truly had skin (and blood) in the game.

1 Timothy 3:13
New International Version (NIV)

13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.

There was nothing better than knowing that I had someone on my side when the enemy attacked… and I learned real quick that the enemy does attack.  But, with God as my shield, the enemy didn’t stand a chance!

Where are you with Christ today?  Do you still have that assurance that you had when you first met Him?  Has it faded?  Do you now feel vulnerable when the enemy attacks?  Or, maybe you’re reading this and you’ve never asked Christ into your life.  If that’s you, you can change that right now by asking Christ into your heart.  CLICK HERE if you’d like to reconnect with Christ or meet Him, and feel that assurance that will change your life forever.

Questions to ask yourself…

1. Do you still remember your first encounter with your loving Savior?

2. Do you still trust Him today as much as you did back then?  Do you trust him more?

3. Do you immediately turn to Him when the enemy attacks?
