Jesus has given us a lifetime for us to build a proper relationship with Him. But as in all relationships it always starts with the first step.
That step should always be to set God as the ruler of your life. He needs to be the reason you do whatever you do.
From there we need to be making Jesus the fabric of our lives by ever seeking to put Him first in everything.
Remember Jesus holds all our tomorrows
So remember when you falter God has not left you nor forsaken you. pick yourselves up by your bootstraps repenting to your God and keep moving forward in obedience to the word of God.
Always remember that
and if we love our Lord we will
In doing this you will have put God first in everything.
