Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. -Matthew 16:24
There's a time in life where we come across two bridges and we must decide which to cross. Here you got one bridge that is gorgeous and decked out, made of solid iron and the other is a rugged old splintered wooden bridge that looks like it's falling apart. But looks can be deceiving as the splintered bridge would lead you all the way, sure it might shake and some boards might fall, but at least you would make it all the way. As for the gorgeous iron bridge, it looks as if it goes all the way, but in reality it only goes half way. You see, the iron bridge is all things man. It looks trustworthy and it looks as if it could take you all the way, but in reality you can only go so far. But as for the old wooden bridge, which represents the Cross that Jesus laid down His life upon. It is that bridge that would take you all the way. You just have to put your faith and trust in Him and know that it is that bridge that will lead you all the way home. It is up to you to decide the bridge you would take. Which one would it be?
