Consider this word: Guilty... We all know what that word FEELS like. Some only feel guilty after they have been caught, some feel guilty when they shouldn't but we are all have been guilty. Remember what it was like to stand before your parents, trembling with the knowledge that you were guilty of something or other. The flush to the face, the quiver inside your wame, and the shame you feel. Think of standing in front of a perfect, omnipotent, and holy God - guilty.
For God's justice demands perfection and because mankind was unable to achieve that perfection he did it for us through the death and resurrection of his Son. He pursues you, He reveals Himself to you, He loves you, He gives you every chance.
If you have no desire for God, you are indeed in a desperate place. If you scoff at the notion, it may already be too late because you "have no excuse for not knowing God".
