Why is this called "Romans road?"
Is it just for the Romans?  No!
Did the Romans write it?  No!

The "Romans Road" explanation of salvation, is named after the sixth book, in the New Testament.
Paul the Apostle, wrote a letter to the Christians in Rome. 
His letter is thus known as ROMANS.
Paul wrote some specific things necessary to believe, in order to be saved.

 

What is "being saved?"
What are we "saved" FROM?

"Being saved" means: When we repent of our sinfulness, God forgives all our sins and sinful nature.
That means He SAVES us,
-  FROM:  the NATURE of sin we were born with; TO: a new NATURE born of His Spirit.
-  FROM:  the CONTROL of sin; TO: the loving control of God.
-  FROM:  the PENALTY of sin;  TO: the reward of righteousness of JESUS.
Being saved is being "born again."   We are saved TO a new life.

 

Who CAN be saved?

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Savior, 
and repents of their sin and asks His forgiveness, can be saved. 

 

Who MUST be saved?

EVERYBODY must be saved!  Because,
"All have sinned..."  Romans 3:23   ".. and come short of the glory of God."
No one is "good enough."  We ALL must be saved.
No one is "so bad"  they can't be saved.
No one can DO enough good things to be saved.
We must acknowledge that we are sinners in NEED of being saved.

 

What if I'm never saved?

"The wages of sin" .... Romans 6:23 ....   ".. is death."
Death, is eternal separation from God, in hell.
This is why it's essential to be saved.

 

What does it cost?

Romans 6:23 also says, "the gift of God, is eternal life through Jesus Christ."
Eternal Life is a FREE GIFT!
It is free, because Jesus loves us. He loved us even while we are sinners.
He loves us so much, He paid the price of death for our sin, ...Romans 5:8

 

What must I do to be saved? 

Confess your faith in Jesus. 
Believe that He forgives you.
Romans 10:9 says, ..."if you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus, 
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you SHALL be saved." 

 

How do I receive forgivenss?

Simply believe this truth, and ask God to forgive you. 
Romans 10:13  "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." 

 


Do I  recite a certain prayer?

No! There is not a "certain" prayer to recite.
"Prayer" is expressing your thoughts and feelings in your own words, to God.
God already knows what's in your heart.  But it's important to pray because 
prayer establishes, expressess and strengthens your faith.

You can pray right now, and when you pray,

·  BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and rose from the dead.

·  CONFESS that you are a sinner and need His forgiveness.

·  RECEIVE His forgiveness;

·  ACCEPT His free gift of eternal life.

 

What do I do now that I believe?

·  - Obey His command to be BAPTIZED publically confessing He is your Savior.

·  - Pray daily!  And as often as possible.

·  - Read the Bible - the Word of God.

·  - Assemble regularly with other believers to worship Him.

·  - Fellowship with true belivers.

·  - Serve God, by BEING the Christian you have BECOME.
