Compare the following two sentences:

A. If you call me I come.
B. If you call me I will come.

Both sentences seem to suggest that an action will take place, if a certain condition is met.
That's what they have in common.

There is a difference though, in a way that sentence A seems to express a sort of general rule, a principle that the speaker adheres to.

In sentence B the speaker merely states an intention (what is likely to happen).

We use the 1st Conditional in offers, suggestions, warnings and threats.

Examples: If we hurry (present simple), we will catch the bus.

If we miss it, there will be another one
