Romans Road to Salvation

1: Who needs salvation?

All have sinned and need salvation

Romans 3:10-12, and 23

As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous—not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” ... For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (NLT).

2: Why do we need salvation?

The consequence of sin is death

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)

3: How does God provide salvation?

Jesus Christ died for our sins. He paid the price for our death.

Romans 5:8

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)

4: How do we receive salvation?

We receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.

Romans 10:9-10 and 13

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. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved ... For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NLT)

5:  What are the results of salvation?

Salvation brings us into a relationship of peace with God. 

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. (NLT)

Romans 8:1

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.  

Romans 8:38-39

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)

Salvation Prayer

Heavenly Father, 

I understand that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself, and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus' precious and holy name.
