The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is a marvellous structure, 90 feet wide and almost 2 miles long. It was considered the marvel of its time, partly because only 11 people died while it was under construction. The builders expected that number to be 35 or more.
The builders actually constructed a safety net under the bridge and that net saved 19 lives. Those men became members of ‘The Halfway to Hell Club.’
There is a safety net for those who want to enter the Gates of Heaven too. That safety net is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it. (Matthew 7:13-14, AMP)
Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God—and that you died on the cross—to pay the price for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead and that you’re alive right now. Please come into my life. Forgive my sin. Make me a member of your family.
I now turn from going my own way. I want you to be the center of my life. Thank you for your gift of eternal life—and for your Holy Spirit—who has come to live in me.
