Simply put, the Romans Road shows the path to Heaven. It uses points from the book of Romans in the Bible to explain God’s gift of salvation. At each stop we learn something new about why we need salvation, how God has provided for it, and how we receive it. As you look at each of the six points outlined here, take time to reflect on what God’s Word has to say. Remember that the book of Romans was written to people just like you and me: people living in a busy culture, trying to make sense of what is true and what is most important in life.
1. Everyone Needs Salvation
The Romans Road describes the only way to Heaven. Study it, learn it, and follow it!
2. Jesus Died For Our Salvation
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)
3. Salvation Is A Gift
But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
4. We Are Saved By Grace
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.... (Romans 11:6)
5. Salvation Comes Through Faith
6. God Saves All Who Call Upon Him
But to him that … believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. (Romans 4:5)
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
The Bible says there are two roads in life: one is the way to eternal joy in Heaven and the other leads to eternal punishment in Hell. Which road are you on? Follow the Romans Road to salvation today. Recognize that you are a sinner and that your sin must be judged by God. See that Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sin, but that you must choose to accept His provision. Understand that you cannot earn your way to Heaven through good works or religious activity. Now turn to God and put your faith in Jesus Christ Who died for you and rose again.
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. (Romans 10:9,10)
