Christian recording artist Fred Hammond sings it spot on: “He’s a bridge, so let Him take you over.” As I listened to these lyrics, my eyes focused on a carving on the wall in my house I hadn’t noticed until that moment.
It was a faint carving of a cross that blended perfectly into the wall. Nevertheless, God allowed me to notice and focus on it. What I saw in this carving of the cross were people. Not just a few, but millions upon millions of people coming from each end of the cross to the center. I saw people coming from north, south, east, and west. I believe they were coming to the center of the cross because that’s where the heart of Jesus drew them.
Jesus said, Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. The cross is our bridge that takes us over to God. Without it, we would have all been condemned to pay the price for our sins, which, unfortunately, the road of destruction leads to. But Jesus paid the price so we could confidently walk over the bridge to be with God. The gate and the road may be narrow, but the road is a smooth flowing highway with no traffic jams, and it is available for everyone to walk across. The gate is narrow because there is only one way to enter the kingdom of God and that is through Jesus Christ.
Are you walking on the bridge of the cross to the Kingdom? If Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior, then rejoice because you know He is the only way, the truth, and the life. If you do not know if you are on this narrow road, then ask Jesus to be the Lord and Savior of your life. He already died for your sins and paid your price “so let Him take you over” to the Kingdom of Heaven.
