Salvation

 

The Roman Road to Salvation
 
The ROMANS ROAD....is a pathway you can walk.
 It is a group of Bible verses from the book of Romans in the New Testament.  If you walk down this road you will end up understanding how to be saved.
Romans 3:23  "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
We all have sin in our hearts. We all were born with sin.  
We were born under the power of sin's control.
- Admit that you are a sinner.
 
Romans 6:23a  "...The wages of sin is death..."
Sin has an ending.  It results in death.  We all face physical death, which is a result of sin.  But a worse death is spiritual death that alienates us from God, and will last for all eternity - where people who are spiritually dead will remain.
- Understand that you deserve death for your sin.
 
Romans 6:23b  "...But the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Salvation is a free gift from God to you!  You can't
earn this gift, but you must reach out and receive it.
- Ask God to forgive you and save you.
 
Romans 5:8,  "God demonstrates His own love for us, in
that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!"
When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin's penalty. He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that  we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life.  He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!
- Give your life to God... His love poured out in Jesus on the cross is your only hope to have forgiveness and change.  His love bought you out of being a slave to sin.  His love is what saves you --  not religion, or church membership.  God loves you!
 
Romans 10:13  "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord  will be saved!"
- Call out to God in the name of Jesus!
 
Romans 10:9,10  "...If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting  in salvation."
- If you know that God is knocking on your heart's door,
ask Him to come into your heart.
 
Jesus said,
Revelation 3:20a "Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him..."
- Is Jesus knocking on your heart's door?
 
  Believe in Him.
  Ask Him to come in to your heart  by faith,
 and ask Him to reveal Himself to you.
  God will help you.  He loves you.
 
Your body has become God's temple.
Your heart is where He lives.
 
Forgiveness is yours in Jesus.
And you belong to Him.
 
You were sin's slave.
But now...
 
 You are a child of GOD!
 
John 1:12
"As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name!"
 
If you have made this commitment to have Jesus forgive your sin and to live for God, contact the pastor if you have any questions of would like to talk about what's next.
