The Romans Road
The Romans Road is a simple explanation of the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ using verses from Paul’s letter to the church at Rome.
- We are all sinners.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
- Sin condemns us to die.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
- Even though we aren’t worthy,
God has given us the gift of eternal life through the sacrifice of His only son.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
- Receiving this gift requires only accepting Jesus as Lord.
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
- This act restores us to a right relationship with God.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1)
- Yes, that’s all there is to it!
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
- This gift is guaranteed and unchangeable.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
Say something like this:
“Loving God, take pity on me, a sinner. I believe in You and that Your word is true. Father, I accept that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Mighty God and that he died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. Lord, I acknowledge that without you in my heart my life is meaningless.
I believe in my heart that You, Caring Lord, raised Him from the dead. Please, Jesus, forgive me, for all the sins I have ever committed or done in my heart, please Lord Jesus forgive me and enter into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior on this day. Lord, I need you to be my Father and my friend.
Father, I give you my life and ask you to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ.
