Two ways to live

A 2-minute video explaining what we believe and why Jesus came.


Two ways to live: the choice we all face

1. God is the loving ruler of the world

He made the world

He made us rulers of the world under him

What the Bible says:

You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.

Revelation chapter 4 verse 11

2. We all reject the ruler-god-by trying to run life our own way without him.

But we fail to rule ourselves or society or the world

What the Bible says:

There is no-one righteous, not even one; there is no-one who understands, no-one who seeks God. All have turned away.

Romans chapter 3, verses 10-12

3. God won’t let us rebel forever. god’s punishment for rebellion is death and judgement.

What the Bible says:

Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement.

Hebrews chapter 9, verse 27

4. Because of his love. god sent his son into the world: the man jesus christ.

jesus always lived under god’s rule.

yet by dying in our place he took our punishment and brought forgiveness

What the Bible says:

Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.

1 Peter chapter 3, verse 18

5. God raised Jesus to life again as the ruler of the world.

Jesus has conquered death, now gives life, and will return to judge

What the Bible says:

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

1 Peter chapter 1, verse 3

Well, where does that leave us?

6. The two ways to live

Our way: Reject the ruler, try to run life our own way. Result, condemned by God, facing death and judgement

God’s new way: Submit to Jesus as our ruler, rely on Jesus’ death and resurrection. Result, Forgiven by God and given eternal life.

What the Bible says:

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.

John chapter 3, verse 36
