A bridge connects one side of the river to the other. It is a one time connection and an ongoing way for commerce and communication to take place. It provides a pathway for productivity and growth to exist between cities like Minneapolis and Saint Paul. It’s a link, it’s a trust, it’s a means of supporting the connection between two entities that would never have been linked previously. God has created a bridge between Himself and us - that bridge is Christ. Now He sends us back into the world to build bridges just as He did.
“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ” 2 Corinthians 5:19
