WE HAVE Good News!
First, realize that you are separated from God by sin, just like everyone else. Sin is any action or thought that God says is wrong. We've all got quite a list of those, don't we!
Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned..." and Romans 6:23 says, "the wages of sin is death". This is speaking of eternal separation from God in a place that the Bible calls hell. Pretty scary predicament!
Then, realize that God offers the solution! The rest of that verse says, "but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". So, God is basically saying: "Hey! You've blown it! Along with the rest of the human race, but I have a gift for you that restores EVERYTHING: a Savior! Just because I love you!" Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!". Even though we've all messed up, God says that Jesus already paid for our sins when he died in our place on the cross! Are you willing to admit your sin? Your need for a Savior? Are you willing to believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior?
Finally, respond to God's offer! Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved". You can accept God's gift right now. Pray a simple prayer, admit your sin and ask Jesus Christ to be your personal Savior! God promises He will answer and give you eternal life! John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
