Between people and God is a great chasm—a division that exists because of our propensity to rebel against God’s way and go our own way instead. The Bible calls this “sin.”
The dilemma we face is that we want to get to God but know we can’t just leap over the chasm. So we try exerting human effort, hoping we can build a bridge. In the end, we realize that all human effort in the world will never be enough to get us to the other side.
But thankfully, God sympathized with our dilemma. And because He loves us so much, He intervened so that we would have a means of getting close to Him. His solution was to choose His Son, Jesus, to serve as the bridge. Christ came to earth to be our bridge, and whoever makes the decision to cross the bridge will live God forever.
The Apostle John put it this way, in John 5:24, “I tell you the truth; whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed from death to life.”
