Thought for the Week "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
There has been a lot of talk about bridges in Atlanta the last day. Thank God no one was hurt in the mess on I-85. Lewis Grizzard once said they'd never finish 85. He might have been right. But, a lack of a bridge has halted all traffic. You can't get from one side to the other. That's what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross. He made a way when we couldn't get from one side to the other. As sinners, we can't get to God. We can't do enough good works and deeds to bridge the gap, so our relationship with God screeches to a halt without Jesus. There is a gap we can't overcome. We are not holy. God is holy. And we can't be with Him unless we're holy. Jesus is the bridge. Even though we are sinners, Jesus died for us to forgive our sins and present us as holy before God. Blameless before Him. That's how much God loves us. He became the bridge when we couldn't find a way over the gap.
