We struggle through life, unwilling or unsure of how to calm the storm that is in and around us. Jesus Christ is the only way for you to know peace. The Roman Road to salvation teaches us the following:
Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one without sin.
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The punishment of sin is death. Not just physical, but eternal death. But fortunately for us sinners, God has offered us eternal life through His son Jesus Christ!
Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” God sent His Son to die for us. Jesus paid the price for our sins!
Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, all we have to do is believe in Him. We place our trust in His death as payment for our sins.
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Salvation, the forgiveness of our sins, is available to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We can have peace with God through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Would you like to follow the Roman Road to salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation.
"God, I know that I have sinned against You and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal life. Amen."
Those words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation.
