The Cross of Jesus Bridges the Great Divide

“And that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.” Ephesians 2:16

Up in heaven is the holy God; down below is the sinful man. And sin is the dividing rod that separates. Man has an empty void, so man is constantly trying to reach God. But he keeps rebounding off the sin barrier. Then God, moved in mercy by the pitiful plight of sinful man, said, “I will do something.”

God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to make a way. And upon the rough hewn timbers of a cross, Jesus gave His life so you and I could live forever and live forgiven.

Jesus built a bridge between man and God. It’s a bridge man could never build and a bridge that man can never take away.

God made a way that we couldn’t make — for you and for me.

Since Jesus built a bridge of love for you to be reconciled to God, it’s your turn to build a bridge of love to someone who is lost and searching.
