The truth is twofold.

One. You are lost.
Two. You are loved. 

We are sinners.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. ~ Romans 3:23


We have all fallen short, or missed the mark, of God's perfection. Our sin is detestable to God, and therefore, we cannot dwell with Him. Our sin earns us death.


For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 
~ Romans 6:23

Because we could not save ourselves, the God of the universe, who is infinite and mighty and abounding in grace and compassion, sent His Son Jesus Christ to be our ransom. 

Jesus came to Earth as a human and died for you and for every sin you would ever commit, even while you were still trapped in a spiral of sin, guilt, and shame. Through faith in Him, you can know peace, and you can know security. He has made a way for you.


You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 
~ Romans 5:6-8

Not only that, but:


For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 
~ John 3:16-17


So, what does this mean?

Back to the truth:
One. Our sin separates us from God, and breaks fellowship with Him so that we can never get to Him (or heaven) of our own accord.


BUT

Two. God knew this, and so He mercifully sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to Earth to be a sin offering for us. Anyone who trusts in Him, believing that He died to save you, will be saved from an eternity of separation from God. 

This is the beauty of salvation, and it will change your life.
