|As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man shall hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me on my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father on his throne.||(Revelation 3:19-21)|
To be good and faithful followers of Christ, we must be prepared to shun and put away our sinful nature. Jesus Christ promises us His love, but He is always ready and willing to point out our faults and correct us if we go astray. When He does, we should be zealous; that is, full of Godly devotion by confessing of our sins through sincere prayer to Our Father and immediately changing our behavior. As soon as we do, Christ will come in to us and grant us a renewed fellowship with Him. And when we overcome our erring ways through humble faith and obedience to God, we are given the privilege of sharing eternal life with Jesus Christ.
