God expects you to come to Him at all times humbly, with a pure and contrite heart. Your attitude should constantly be: “I Am Nothing.” God wants you to be free from all selfish desires, unrighteousness, and sin. Always confess your sins right away to God and ask for His Help to stop thinking or doing anything that would cause separation between you and Him. God desires unbroken intimacy and faithfulness from you. Respond to Him. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9. After Jesus forgives your sins, and removes all condemnation, and the death penalty that your sins require, He expects you to submit to Him and to “go, and sin no more.” John 8:11. Never allow anything to separate you from Jesus Christ, your First Love. “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” Mark 12:30. Remain humble. See Romans 12:3. “I can of mine own self do nothing…” John 5:30. You need to continually maintain your faith and love for God, and for Jesus Christ. “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” Revelation 2:4-5. You show Jesus you love Him by doing the things He asked you to do. “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15. Your obedience shows God that you are nothing apart from Him, while disobedience shows that you desire to rebel against God, living independently and apart from Him. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20. Whom you choose to serve will determine your eternal destiny. “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;” Joshua 24:14-16. Are you willing to surrender to God and to Jesus Christ, or do you desire to have it your way? You will either have faith and confidence in God or you will have doubt and unbelief.
