After receiving Jesus Christ, as your Savior, there is a process of being made new or whole.
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
"Unto" is the process and salvation is eternal life but also, salvation means "to be made whole".
It is a process. The Holy Spirit and the Word of God does the work in our hearts!
As I was reading, John Maxwells Leadership Bible, this morning, the revelation for me was; the intimacy with God increases as we mature and become adults (Spiritually mature). This is exciting! We don't need to get discouraged with wherever we are in the process. Persevere, keep moving forward. We are all growing closer to Him, as we seek Him.
One other key: "with our mouth" confession is made "unto" salvation (unto wholeness).
Declare with your mouth:
Thank You Father, that You are growing me with your Word and the Holy Spirit. I desire to mature and know you more. Amen.
