The terrible truth is that we are separated from Him because of our sin.  None of us can be good enough or do enough to spend eternity with Him. (I John 1:8; Romans 3:10-18)

But the amazing thing is that even though we didn't deserve it, Jesus took the punishment for our sins.  (Romans 5:8)  God sacrificed His own son Jesus because He knew that it was the only way for us to be in fellowship with Him again.  your life to Him.

All God wants you to do is: 

Admit you are sinful and could not be good enough on your own.

Believe that Jesus is God's Son, He died to pay the debt for your sin, and conquered over death.

Commit your life to serving Jesus Christ.
