Bridging Sin’s Gulf

From John 14:6-7:  “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.'”

Mankind born into sin

Separated from God

Our innocent goodness

Forever will be flawed


Bridging sin’s gulf, so vast

Stumbling imperfection

Seeking lasting mercy

Crying for affection


God knows our transgressions

Evil’s hidden darkness

All come to Him with guilt

Life’s absolute starkness


Bridging sin’s gulf, at last

Accepting Christ as Lord

Finding lasting mercy

Crucifying sin’s sword


God’s Holy perfection

Beyond our humble hold

Savior’s blood pays our debts

Christ’s forgiveness unfolds

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “Only the cross of Christ spans the gulf between alienation and reconciliation.
