Across the Gap

On June 15, 2012, Nik Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls on a tightrope. The distance across the falls is an 1800-foot gap between the United States and Canada. That is a long way to walk on a tightrope! But Nik was confident that the rope would hold him and would not break.
Ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, there has been a gap between people and God. People have tried many ways to get across that gap by their own good works. But we cannot cross that gap by ourselves. The only way we can come close to God is through Jesus.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul told Timothy how people can get across that gap. Verse 5a says, “There is only one God, and there is only one way that people can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus.”
The devil will try to keep you from reaching God. But stand strong on God’s Word and let Jesus lead you through life.
