God wants an intimate relationship with you. This is why He revealed Himself through the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
Seeing Jesus crucified, while He was forgiving all those responsible, was meant to give us confidence in the love of God.
You can, therefore, confidently trust in the Lord Jesus to be a God and Father to you. You do not have to doubt whether or not He will forgive you for your sins.
You must, however, seek to live as godly as you know how. God does not take sin lightly. If you willingly do what you know is wrong, you will suffer punishment for it. Sometimes the punishment will be of your own determination. In any case, it will always be fair and appropriate. It is far better, however, not to sin.
If you can see the Lord, you can avoid sin. A thief can avoid stealing if he’s always in the presence of a police officer. “See” the Lord. Stay in the presence of the One who can make you want to live godly…if for no other reason than to please Him.
When you keep the eyes of your understanding on the Lord, His Holy Spirit will fill you and guide you. Your thoughts will not just be your own; they will include His, too. This is the most intimate of relationships: your thoughts intertwined with God’s in the sanctuary of your heart.
You’ll never be lonely as long as you can see the Lord.
