THE ROMAN ROAD TO SALVATION

EVERYONE IS A SINNER

The Cross

As the Scriptures say:

"No one is good - no one in all the world is innocent.". . .Romans 3:10
Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious ideal.. . .Romans 3:23

God does not compare us to each other to decide what we are like. He compares us to Himself. It does not matter what kind of a life that we live. When we are compared to God, we will always fall short.

THERE IS A PRICE FOR OUR SIN.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.. . .Romans 6:23.

Going to church, asking for forgiveness, doing good works - all of these are good to do - but they do not pay for our sin. The only payment for sin acceptable to God is death. Our bodies pay for sin by dying a physical death. Our souls pay for sin by an eternal death in Hell.

And Death and Hell were thrown into the Lake of Fire. This is the Second Death - the Lake of Fire..Revelation 20:14.

JESUS PAID OUR PAYMENT FOR US.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.. . .Romans 5:8

God does not just tell us that He loves us, He proved His love for us by allowing His Son to die on the cross. When Christ died, He was not paying for His own sin, because He did not have any; He suffered, in our place, the only payment that God would accept - death.

GOD NOW OFFERS US ETERNAL LIFE AS A FREE GIFT.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.. . .Romans 6:23.

Since Jesus has paid our debt, God is now able to offer us eternal life as a free gift. Heaven cannot be earned, worked for, or kept by us. It is given by God out of love.

That's it! Being saved is simply accepting a gift for which you could never pay, but that is available because someone else has already paid for it. It is that easy because Jesus has already done the hard part.

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE?

Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.. . .Romans 10:13.

If you believe that Jesus is willing and able to save you, then simply bow your head right now and ask him to do so. You can pray a prayer like this:

"Dear Heavenly Father,
I know that I am a sinner,
and I ask for your forgiveness,
Jesus,
I believe that you died for my sins,
and rose from the dead.
I turn from my sins, I repent of my sins.
I invite you to come into my heart and my life,
I want to trust and follow you;
as my Lord and Saviour
Thank you, Jesus, for saving me.
In Jesus Name,
Amen."

If you sincerely prayed that prayer, then as of this moment, you have God's gift of eternal life. You have God's word on it.

But some will come to me - those the Father has given me - and I will never, never reject them.. . .John 6:37.

IF YOU LEAD SOMEONE TO BE SAVED OR YOU JUST BECAME SAVED WHAT SHOULD BE YOUR NEXT STEP?

Get a Bible and join us here daily to read the Bible readings and pray. Ask God to guide you to a good church where you can learn to worship him and learn to love others and accept love from others. You have only just taken the first step on the long journey of getting to know the one who gave his life for you, and you have just joined a new family and gained a new Father.

Happy Birthday - Welcome to the Family!
