I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Just down the street from where I live they are tearing down an apartment building. As I walk by I can see into rooms that used to house families, I can see doors hanging off hinges and most disconcerting, I see stairways that lead to nowhere. If you were on the stairway going down you end at a 6 story drop and if you were going up there is no more roof, just the sky.
I was thinking this week about those broken stairways. Standing on one of those steps you would be trapped, with nowhere to go. Mankind is in that same position, but Jesus bridges the gap between men and God. He becomes the stairs that allow us to reach our destination. While the building with gaping holes and broken stairs inspires thoughts of sadness, the thought of How Jesus made a way for us brings such joy. He is the way and He can build something new and wonderful when we surrender our life to Him.
