Salvation

The Romans Road to Salvation

  • We are all sinners by nature and by choice.

Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

 

  • We receive eternal life as a free gift.

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

 

  • God demonstrated His love for us, His enemies.

Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

  • We must trust and surrender to Jesus as Lord.

Romans 10:9-10 - That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord", believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified; and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

 

  • Our assurance of salvation through Jesus

Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

A sinner's prayer for God's forgiveness

"Dear God, I know I'm a sinner.  I know my sin deserves to be punished.  I believe Jesus is the Son of God, Who died for me and rose from the grave.  I want to turn from my sin and trust Jesus alone as my Savior.  Thank You for the forgiveness and everlasting life I can now have through faith in Jesus.  Amen."
