    The Romans Road to Salvation

    There is a God in Heaven who loves you as you are.

    While many of us believe in God, we feel separated from Him.  We know
    God to be holy and good and see ourselves as unholy, undeserving of
    his love.  We feel that we can not know him.  However, God loves us
    and His love will save us from our sins and allows us to be God's

    John 3:16 is one of the most famous verses in the Bible.  It states,
    "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that
    whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal
    life." (KJV)

    He loved the world, not just specific individuals.  He loves everyone.

    To understand this love and to get salvation, we must look at the
    Romans Road to Salvation.  This, from a group of verses from the book
    of Romans in the New Testament, is a pathway we walk.  By walking down
    this road, we will understand how to become saved and gain God's

    Romans 3:23

    "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God" (KJV)

    We were all born with sin.  We are under the control of sin.  We have
    sin in our hearts and thoughts.  Some people may laugh at this but yes
    even a bad thought, such as hating somebody is a sin.  Even if you do
    not physically show this hate, it is still a sin when you think it.

    Since we sin, we have fallen short of God's intended purpose for us.
    He made us to know Him, to receive His love and to love Him.  God
    gives us a choice.  Many of us turn from Him to pursue our selfish
    lives.  Since we sin, we cannot know God and His love.  We are lost
    and separated from God.

    The first step along this road is to admit that you are a sinner.

    Romans 6:23

    "For the wages of sin is death..." (KJV)

    Sin has an ending that results in death.  We all face physical death.
    This has resulted from the beginning of time when Adam and Eve sinned.

    However, once we die, it does not end.  we also die a spiritual death
    that alienates us from God for all eternity.  The Bible talks about
    the Lake of fire where lost people will be in torment forever.

    We must understand that we deserve death for our sins.  There is good
    news as we look at the remainder of this verse...

    Romans 6:23

    "...But the Gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our
    Lord." (KJV)

    God is offering a free gift to us.  This is salvation, or eternal
    life.  We do not earn this gift by doing good deeds.  God gives us
    this gift with no strings attached.  We must ask God for this Gift of
    Salvation, eternal life with him.

    We must ask God to forgive us.

    Romans 5:8

    "But God commendth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
    sinners, Christ died for us."  (KJV)

    When Jesus died on the Cross, He paid the price for all sins of the
    world.  He bought us out of slavery to sin and death.

    God loved us so that when we were in our sin, Jesus Christ came to die
    for us

    We must believe in Jesus and that He had died for us.  By doing this,
    we are joined with Him and He is our life.  He loved us and gave
    Himself for us.

    At this point in the Road, we give our lives to God.  His love poured
    out in Jesus on the Cross is our only hope to have forgiveness and
    change.  His love bought us out of sin's slavery.  His love is what
    saves us, not religion or church membership.  We remember that God
    loves us and reaches us where we are at.

    Romans 10:13

    "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be
    saved." (KJV)

    All we have to do is call out to God in the name of Jesus.  To call is
    simply to ask in prayer.  We are not required to do more.  By praying
    a prayer of repentance an faith, we are saved.

    "Believing by faith that God loves me and sent His Son, Jesus Christ,
    to die for my sin and arise from the grave to live in me, I repent of
    my sin and accept Jesus Christ as my Personal Lord and Savior.
    According to the promise of God in Romans 10:13, I have called upon
    His name and have His Word for the assurance of my salvation."

    Romans 10:9,10

    (9)  "That if though 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." (KJV)

    (10)   For with the heart men believeth unto righteousness; and with
    the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (KJV)

    God is knocking on our hearts' doors.  We musk ask Him to come into
    our hearts.  When we place faith in Jesus Christ, to simply take God
    at His Word, we receive His free gift of love and life.  We must
    believe that Jesus is God's Son, who died for our sin on the Cross and
    arose from the grave to live in us as Savior and Lord.

    Remember that Jesus is knocking on everybody's heart.  In Revelation
    3:20, Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man
    hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him." (KJV)

    Jesus is inviting us personally, asking us to come in to our hearts by
    faith and asking him to reveal Himself to us,  By doing this we will
    be born again.

    We have reached the end of the Romans Road to Salvation by being Born
    Again.  However, the Road does not stop here.  It is a continuous
    journey, since we may stray from the path.

    We must read the Bible and look through the different books,
    especially the Gospel of John.  God will show and teach us.  He loves

    We also must look for a church that teaches God's Word.  We must
    desire this Word like a baby desires a mother's love.  We must be
    hungry for the truth.

    When we are saved, our bodies become God's temples.  Our hearts are
    where He lives.  Forgiveness is ours in Jesus.  And we belong to Him.
    We were sin's slave.  But now we are Children of God.

    "Dear God,  I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry.  I need a
    Savior.  I know I cannot save myself.  I believe by faith that Jesus,
    your Son, died on the Cross to be my Savior.  I believe He arose from
    the grave to live as my Lord.  I turn from my sin.  I ask you, Lord
    Jesus, to forgive my sins and come into my heart.  I trust you as my
    Savior and receive you as my Lord.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving

    The End Times Are Coming. Are You Prepared?

    I am not talking about the end times that are predicted in the Book of
    Revelation in the Bible.  That is still to come and nobody, but God,
    knows when this event will take place.  However, the next second in
    your life may be your last.  For example, I might be driving to work
    and get involved in a life-ending accident.

    It is very important to be prepared for that last second in your
    life.  Death is something not to be afraid of.  Think of it as an
    entrance to eternal life and joy in Heaven.

    However, the only way to get into Heaven is through God's Son, the
    Lord Jesus Christ.  Individuals who think that by going to church,
    tithing their paychecks and doing good deeds will get them into
    Heaven, may be wrong.  While these are good things, if they do not
    have Jesus in their lives and do not consider themselves as sinners,
    they will not have salvation.

    Salvation is God's free gift of love and life.  It is easy to get this
    gift.  All you have to do is believe and have faith in Jesus Christ.
    You have to believe with your heart that Jesus is God's Son who died
    on the cross for our sins and rose from the grave.

    We must acknowledge that we are sinners.  Some people claim that they
    do not sin by not drinking and smoking, for example.  Others feel that
    they will never get to Heaven because of their sins.  However, all
    people are sinners.

    God realizes that we are not perfect.  He wants us to realize that we
    are sinners.  We show this to him by confessing to God that we are

    All we need to do is call upon Jesus to save us from our sins and we
    will be saved.  All that needs to be done is to say a prayer like

    Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry.  I need a
    savior.  I know that I cannot save myself.  I believe by faith that
    Jesus, your Son, died on the cross to be my savior.  I believe that he
    arose from the grave to live as my Lord.  I turn from my sin, I ask
    you, Lord Jesus, to forgive my sin and come into my heart.  I trust
    you as my savior and receive you as my Lord.  Thank you, Jesus for
    saving me.

    Feel free to make comments, these are very welcome.  Also try to post questions and comments from a non-Christian viewpoint.  That way I can be challenged into supporting what I post.
