Recently Luke and Stephen went for a bike ride with Darryl, Stephen’s father, to some nearby villages. We literally rode up and down hills, across rivers, and through the forest. At one location, we crossed a river, not just once but twice. To some degree, we crossed the river by faith, faith that the bridge wasn’t going to collapse.
As you can tell, the bridge didn’t collapse, but there is a good chance that it is only a matter of time for this bridge.
As I ponder this bike ride and this bridge, I think of the 1 Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Why does this verse come to mind? Because the Wycliffe Bible translators translated the word “mediator” as “bridge” in the Agutaynen New Testament. So, for the Agutaynens, 1 Timothy 2:5 reads like, “Jesus is the only bridge for God and man to come together.”
Aren’t we all thankful that Jesus is a sure bridge, that will never collapse!
Please pray with us as we make final preparations for Bible Camp in April. We hope this will be a wonderful outreach and that many will trust in Jesus, the only bridge and the only door to salvation. Thank you.
