The Bridge Is Out – Would you stop and warn people the bridge is out to save them?



This is a good story. I am not sure who wrote this, but I thought I would share it as part of a series I have done called Road Signs of the Bible.

The Bridge Is Out

This preacher was driving home one night with his wife and two daughters in the car.

It was dark and raining heavily,so the pastor could hardly see past his headlights.

On the way he had to drive over a huge bridge.

There were posted signs “DO NOT PICK UP HITCH-HIKERS.”

By the base of the bridge, there was an institution for the criminally insane and sometimes people would escape from it and try to catch a ride.

On this night, as the pastor slowly approached the bridge, a man suddenly appeared in the headlights.

He was soaked, standing in the middle of the road, frantically waving his shirt over his head and screaming.

The preacher’s wife cautioned her husband , “Oh please don’t stop, try to drive around him!”

Car was too close, the man was unavoidable, except to stop or kill him.

As soon as the Pastor stoped, the man slapped his hand down on the hood of the car and continued screaming, at the top of his lungs, unabated.

The preacher looked over at his wife and said to lock the door after him and not to unlock it until he returned.

His family understandably perturbed and crying, pleaded with him not to get out of the car.

He opened the door and stepped outside…

He was immediately soaked from the rain.

As he approached the the man, all of a sudden he could make out what the man was screaming,

“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

THE BRIDGE IS OUT!

“A BUS LOAD OF KIDS JUST WENT OVER!”

As these words registered in the pastor’s mind, he looked back in the car at his wife and two daughters.

He wrapped his arm around the man and wept in gratitude.

The preacher stood there with the man for the next half-hour in the middle of the road, waving his jacket above his head screaming to warn other commuters.

Stop “THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

For a lost and a dying world,

“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

For a people heading to a Christless Eternity,

“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

Where are the men and the women who will stand in the middle of the road and forbid people to perish?

HELL HAS OPENED IT’S MOUTH WIDE AND MANY ARE SPEEDING INTO IT.

Where are those who will stand in the gap, on the streets, the highways and the byways to forbid multitudes with the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, to warn others from going to such a horrible place?

Please SPREAD THE GOSPEL TODAY.

Remember JESUS Loves us all and wants nothing, absolutely nothing but that we be saved…

“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”

Time is Running Out.
