Romans 5:18

Romans 5:18 - Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.

God created this world so that He could walk in fellowship with man. That’s how it was in the beginning. God and Adam walked together. They Loved each other. Life was how it should be. Then Adam was lured away from perfection with a lie from the enemy. 
Adam made a choice and sin entered into the world. Then man could no longer stand in the presence of God and the fellowship was lost. God lost the relationship that He wanted and so He made a plan to restore it. He wanted this relationship so bad that he chose to let His innocent Son die. With the death of His Son, Jesus, life could be restored to mankind.
Just as death came through the one sin of Adam, so life came by the one act of righteous act of Jesus. Now our relationship with God is restored and we can walk with Him again. Jesus bridges the gap that separated us and makes it possible.
So often we see our own life as insignificant. We get lost in ourselves and our screw ups and don’t see how anyone could ever Love us. If that is you right now think about what God was willing to give up for you. The Bible reminds us that ‘while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.’
God Loves you so much. He didn’t wait for you to get your life in order and come to Him. He came for you and made it possible for you to come to Him. God chose you even though He had no guarantee that you would choose Him. He wants to have a relationship with you. You are significant; you are Loved, more than you know.
