Bridge over Troubled Waters April 15, 2016

Two little boys in Switzerland lived near a lake. One day, on their way across the ice covered lake to meet their father, they came to a crack in the ice. It was only a foot wide and the ice was quite thick, but their mother, who watched helplessly from the window of their home was afraid the smaller boy would try to step over it and fall in. Then, to her delight,she saw the older boy lie down on the ice, his feet on one side of the crack, his hands on the other side forming a bridge. His little brother crept over him to safety on the other side. That is exactly what our Lord Jesus did for you and me. He bridged the gap between us and heaven, caused by our sins and failures, since “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Jesus, by His death on the cross of Calvary, became a bridge for all, saying, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
