Hello everybody hope you all are doing well. Im 21 years old and from Tennessee. I have recently reconnected with the Lord and it sure feels great to have his guidance in my life and know that I have such a loving and forgiving savior. I’ve been “saved” before but have never truly started repenting and wanting to live for God until now and it feels amazing so maybe I wasn’t truly saved until now. I just know I want to continue to strengthen my relationship with Jesus. Looking forward to talking to you all and hope you guys are having a blessed day/night.

Hello @Stephens12, and welcome to CChat! I'm glad that you found us and joined in the discussions with us :)

In a similar way to you, I always believed that I was a Christian (having been baptized as an infant and basically raised in the church), so it was a real surprise to me when I finally became one (a true believer, that is) 2 months after my 30th birthday (11/2/86). That's when everything in my life changed.

God bless you!!

~Deuteronomy

1 Thessalonians 5
23 May the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body
be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.

Welcome Stephens12,
Same here, I rejoiced to say a prayer and understand this verse…..

John 3:7 KJV
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

To be born again of the spirit.
But I was like this ……spiritually
Mark 8:24 KJV
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
And I thought I was a christian because I went to church and believed in God.
I was very disappointed with the wrong doctrine I was taught, not even knowing what was right, also I never heard of being “saved.”
I thought repentance was going to church, believing and being born again.

After attending a Bible (word of God) believing church, I came to realise that I had not repented and been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
I didn’t even know where I was going if I died.
Christians accepted me because they knew that I had prayed for salvation and I had been baptised. But I could not freely testify and had no assurance.
I didn’t understand fully.
But God opened my blinded eyes when I continued in prayer.
I didn’t want to die in my sleep, not knowing where I would go.
God is so faithful. He wanted also to be my King and Master, not just only Saviour.
