YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF GRACE!
Building a Bridge of Grace over which the TRUTH can travel…
John 1:17 says, “For the Law was given through Moses; but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!
Romans 5:8 says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF PURSUIT!
Luke 19:10 says, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF KINDNESS!
Romans 2:4 says, “Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?”
YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF PATIENCE!
2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”
YOU CAN BE A BRIDGE OF HUMILITY!
Building a Bridge of confessing your wrong and asking the other person to forgive you.
James 4:6 says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble”, and James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
You have probably heard it said, “people don’t care what you know, unless they know that you care.”
So care enough to extend grace before you extend truth… and care enough to extend unconditional love… show care enough to pursue… care enough to express kindness… and care enough to express patience… care enough about the relationship to confess your wrong and ask for forgiveness…
YOU CAN BE a BRIDGE of influence for men, women and young people to have a fresh start for their heart and to experience what it really means to be forgiven, forgiving and free!
And when they are FORGIVEN, FORGIVING & FREE… They can be a BRIDGE to others!
And, remember, IT’S NEVER TOO LATE FOR A FRESH START!
