The Bridge to God

Since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:23-24 (RSV)

A 4-year-old boy was walking hand in hand with his father in a public square. Confident in himself, he lets go of his father's hand. Without saying anything, the father let him do it. While walking alone, he stepped into a pile of mud. Dirty, the little boy turned to his father, arms raised, waiting for him to pull him out of the mud. This scene made me realize that we are no different from this little boy.

Despite God's love, care, and protection, we all want to walk alone. Except that unlike that little boy, when we sin, instead of turning to God, we take the risk and continue to walk in sin. The Bible teaches us that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Which creates a gap between God and us. It took a savior to save us from the condemnation of sin and fill the gap.

Through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ served as a bridge to bring us to God. Otherwise, we would still be in the mud, waiting like the little boy. Christ accomplished God's will that we might be saved. He perfectly fulfilled God's standards by paying with His life for the failure of our actions. When we deserved God's wrath, Jesus' work accomplished all that was required. The good news is that our role in this process is to believe in Him as the only bridge that can connect us to God.

May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
