There Is Only One Way
"Jesus told him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.'" (NLT)
There is no easy way across the great gulf shown in this picture except for the bridge. Without the bridge one would have to drop down into the valley and then scramble back up the other side, a long and difficult journey. The builders of the bridge provided an easy way to cross this chasm. There is a similar chasm between the way of sin and the way of righteousness. There is a great difference between this spiritual problem crossing from sin to righteousness and the physical problem of crossing the chasm shown in the picture. No man can devise a plan to cross from sin to righteousness. The only way is shown in John 14:6 when Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." That's it--no exceptions, no alternatives, no man-made solution--just Jesus. But, that way is easy. Just ask Jesus to forgive your sins, and then accept His gift of forgiveness. Go ahead, do it. I'll be looking for you on the streets of heaven.
