1 A summary of what the Bible teaches A summary of what the Bible teaches The Bridge to Life Adapted on St Peter's Barge from Two Ways to Live and Bridge to Life

2 1. The world as God made it Revelation 4v11 God is the loving ruler of the world He made the world And he made us to rule the world under his authority

3 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)

4 2. The way things are today Romans 3v10-12 SINSIN But each of us rejects God as ruler. We try to run our life our own way. This is what the Bible calls sin. It leaves us cut off from God now and heading for eternal separation from him.

5 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, they have together become worthless; there is no-one who does good, not even one.’ (Romans chapter 3 verses 10-12)

6 Doing Good Religion 3. The bridges that don’t work Hebrews 9v27 SINSIN Many people think they can bridge the gap – by doing good or by getting religious. But nothing we do can get us across to God’s side and deal with the judgement we deserve

7 The Bible says… ‘…man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment’ (Hebrews chapter 9 verse 27)

8 4. God’s loving solution J E S U S 1 Peter 3v18 SINSIN Doing Good Religion In his love God sent Jesus into the world to die in our place. On the cross he took the punishment we deserve so we might be forgiven

9 The Bible says… ‘For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.’ (1 Peter chapter 3 verse 18)

10 5. A living hope 1 Peter 1v3 J J Doing Good Religion J E S U S God then raised Jesus to life and he returned to heaven. He has now been made the ruler by God. He is able to give new life and will one day return to judge

11 The Bible says… ‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ ! 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)

12 6. The choice we face J J Doing Good Religion Our Way God’s Way John 3v36 We are left with a choice – to continue going our own way and so face death and judgment Or to accept Jesus personally as rescuer and ruler, and so be forgiven and receive eternal life with him

13 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)
