The Bridge*

In the past, I have traveled in many countries of the world. I especially enjoy traveling in the mountains. Often when I look at two mountains, I try to imagine the distance between them. I wonder how I could get from one mountain to the other. Then as I am driving, I discover a long bridge. That bridge, like the one in the drawing, is the only way to get to the other mountain.
Jesus is like a bridge. The only way you and I can get to God, our heavenly Father, is through Jesus. God loved us and sent Jesus to be our Savior. But when we sin, there is a gap between us and God. Jesus’ death on the cross bridged that gap. Any person can come to God through Jesus.
Take time today to thank God for being the bridge of salvation. I am so thankful for Jesus. I hope you are thankful, too.
