A few years ago the state of Alaska received much press for their famed “Bridge to Nowhere”. It was a proposed bridge from Ketchikan, Alaska, to Gravina Island, where 50 residents called home, and the Ketchikan Airport resides. This bridge, replacing a ferry that ran every 30 minutes across the bay, was to be longer than the Golden Gate Bridge, and higher than the Brooklyn Bridge. This bridge, answering a question no one was asking, was proposed to cost $398 Million, or $7.9 Million per resident of Gravina Island.
The “Bridge to Nowhere” makes no sense, but being a bridge to Jesus, for those seeking Him, that is priceless! So my question for you, as we prepare for our sermon series continuation this Sabbath, are you a bridge or a barrier? One leads others to Life, the other keeps them in darkness.
