Jesus Is A Bridge.

“He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation.” – Colossians 1:22

Jesus is the bridge between us and God the Father. He is the only way we have access to such a perfect, holy, righteous God. “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ” (John 14:6) He is the One who asks for mercy on our behalf. “Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died — more than that, who was raised to life — is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Romans 8:34)

Jesus’ death on the cross is the only way for us to leave our sin behind and embrace the holiness of God. The cross of Christ bridges the chasm separating all of mankind from God (no matter how righteous a person appears to be, they are nothing without the Savior). “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) “And in one body to reconcile both of them (Jew & Gentile) to God through the cross, by which He put to death their hostility.” (Ephesians 2:16)
