Bridge of Life
In the beginning, God created Man.
Man was created to love God, but man chose to sin against Him.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Since God is holy and man is sinful, sin separates man from God.
Because man is cut off from God who gives him life, death is the result.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
The judgment that everyone has to face after death, is to suffer eternally in hell.
As sinners, man cannot do anything to get back to God.
This is because of sin that still stands as a barrier between man and God.
But the Bible also tells us that God loves man and came into this world as Jesus Christ to bridge this gap between sinful man and a holy God.
Jesus Christ died by being nailed on the cross to take the punishment for sins.
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Not only did Jesus die for our sins, but He was buried and arose from the grave on the third day. No one else in history has ever risen from the dead. This means that no one but Jesus can save us.
“Jesus saith…, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
In order to be saved by Jesus, you need to turn away from your sins and turn to Him alone.
When you turn to Jesus, you must believe in Him and receive Him into your life.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
To believe in Jesus does not mean giving mental agreement to what the Bible says about Him. It means that you make the commitment to receive Him forever as your Saviour and Lord.
“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).
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37).
Does all this make sense to you?
Will you come to Jesus for salvation right now?
