The Bible is the bridge between two Worlds

the bible

The Bible lays out God’s plan and purpose for mankind. The bible tells us about our God and it gives us hope of things to come. The bible is the bridge between God and man.

Belief cannot exit on its own. All belief has to be substantiated by something. In order to believe anything, there has to be a bridge into an unseen reality.

This bridge, or “go between” gives substance to that which is believed. The bridge gives us something to hold onto as proof of the existence of something that our senses cannot detect.

We cannot contact the spiritual world through our senses. Therefore God bridged the gap between the spiritual and the physical world by giving us something we could hold onto. He gave us the bible which serves as evidence or proof of what we cannot see with our eyes.

For example, radio waves fill the air around us 24/7/365 although we can’t feel them and we can’t see them. There is no way for us to physically perceive their existence. However, I can readily prove the presence of radio waves in the room by simply plugging in and turning on a device used to detect their presence…a radio.

Alerting our senses to that which cannot be seen

On the ride home from school, Jordan and I usually talk about the day’s activities and anything interesting he may have learned in class. Today, he learned that natural gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless. In order to be detected, a chemical called Mercaptan is injected into the gas stream. This Mercaptan is what gives natural gas its sulfur-like odor.

Enough Mercaptan is injected into the gas stream so that gas leaks can be detected at levels far below the ignition point so that the smallest gas leak can be detected and repaired quickly. Without Mercaptan added to natural gas, many people would be killed from undetected natural gas leaks in the home.

Now Mercaptan is the evidence of Natural Gas not seen

Jordan learned today that Mercaptan is the bridge that our senses use to detect when natural gas is present. I took this opportunity to help Jordan see that God gave us His Word, the bible for our senses to be alerted to who God is and what He has provided for us the same way that we use Mercaptan in the detection of natural gas.

We cannot contact the spiritual world through our senses. Therefore God bridged the gap between the spiritual and the physical world by giving us something we could hold onto. He gave us the bible which serves as evidence or proof of what we cannot see with our eyes.

The Bible is our window into a world which cannot be seen

To have faith in God is to have faith in His Word. God and His Word are one. When we read the bible and meditate on what is written, faith is the result. I encourage to you get into the bible and find out what God says in His Word about your situation and your circumstances. Spend some quality time in the bible and peer into the unseen realm of the spirit and begin to see the things which cannot be seen.

Allow the bible to be your bridge into knowledge and understanding of the abundant life that Jesus spoke about in John 10:10.

  3. This bible is the role model that we should live by because it is the mind of God in words. As a believer we should strive to be like God and the only way that can happen is if we live according to the bible. No man can be God but our lives must reflect God in us. The bible is the bridge and if one has to enter into heaven one must live by the word of God.

    John 15:7 If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. The bible is and forever will be the most powerful book ever written so lets live by it daily.
