There is a great unbridgeable wall between God and me - and Jesus is The Door by which I can enter into God’s realm, and His realm can enter into me.
Jesus calls you to be led by Him, and belong to a good local church - as His sheep, in His flock, in His fold, with a shepherd, led by Him, The Good Shepherd.
Sheep are killed for the good of the shepherd. But The Good Shepherd died for the good of the sheep.
“I am The Good Shepherd, I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15.
