With this post, I’m going to be starting a series on spiritual maturity.  As they could get rather lengthy, I will keep these lessons in outline format.  Now, as Christians we may know Christ as Savior, but where are we in our relationship with Him?  The aim of this series is to take a look at some areas in our lives that will draw us closer to Him with Bible verses for support.  If you are reading this, and you do not know Jesus as Savior, I would advise you read on also as these posts especially this one will help you know how you can rest assured you will go to heaven.

With all that being said, the first part of this series on spiritual maturation kicks off on the topic of salvation and assurance of salvation:
