Uniting Church Congregations using Two Ways to Live
Gospel Outline (memorised then naturalised)
God is the loving ruler of the world. He made the world. He made us rulers of the world under him.
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.
God won’t let us rebel forever. God’s punishment for rebellion is death and judgment.
Because of this 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.
God raised Jesus to life again as the ruler of the world. Jesus has conquered death, now gives new life, and will return to judge.
The two ways to live:
A: Our way – reject the ruler – God and try to run our life our own way, resulting in being condemned by God and facing death and judgment.
B: God’s new way – submit to Jesus as our ruler, rely on Jesus’ death and resurrection, resulting in being forgiven by God and being given eternal life.
The first question you must ask yourself is “Which way do you I want to live?”
1. Talk to God
2. Submit to Jesus
3. Keep trusting
