Why do Christians talk about being lost then found?

The Bible teaches that people who believe in Jesus will not be lost… but what does this mean?

Christians believe that the Bible is talking about being away from God. They believe that before somebody becomes close friends with God they can feel separate from him; they can feel so far away from God that they feel lost.

The Bible teaches that when Jesus lived, died and rose again he made a way for people to come back to God. Christians believe that people who say ‘Yes’ to God’s love and forgiveness are no longer lost but found.
