How will we ever get across?
I can jump across.
Good efforts aren’t enough.
The Bible says…”All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
I’ve earned it. I’ve worked hard for everything I’ve got. I deserve it. I… I…AAAIEEE!!!
Good morals aren’t enough.
We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. (Isaiah 64:6)
Let me try! I can make it. I’ve lived a very moral life. I help others all the…AAAIIEEE!!!
Education and psychology aren’t enough.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Proverbs 14:12)
I can do it! I’m well educated, and I’ve got life’s answers figured out. Nothing can… AAAIIEEE!!!
Religion isn’t enough.
Jesus said in the Bible… Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven…I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23)
I’ll make it. I’ve dedicated my life to my religion. I worship every…AAAIIEEE!!!
Well if these guys can’t make it, I certainly can’t. I need help from the other side.
God made a way to get to Him.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the spirit. (1 Peter 3:18)
But we have to walk across His bridge to get there.
But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. (John 1:12)
I’m trusting in Christ to save me.
Man’s way: death
God’s way: life through faith in Christ
Now the question is, which side of the bridge are you on?
Dear Lord, I turn from my own way of trying to earn my way to You, and I now place my trust in Your Son, Jesus, who died for me and rose from the grave.
